S~T7\ reserving the past, 
^yr^ Confronting our fu- 
^-^ ture . . . Looking 
around the campus, there 
was a certain mixture of 
past and present at 
Samford. The scenes and 
traditions of the past were 
mixed with the newness 
and activity of the present. 
As Samford kept pace with 
the present with a curric- 
ulum based on the latest 
technologies and trends, a 
strong foundation of Chris- 
tian principles not only pre- 
pared students for success 
but for growth and fulfill- 
ment — professionally and 

The past was held in the 
buildings, Christian tradi- 
tions, and hearts of the peo- 
ple who had been a part of 
the Samford community. 
The future was evident as 
the university strove to stay 
ahead of the present. The 
future was held in the stu- 
dents who entered the 
gates of Samford to pre- 
pare for a lifetime of service 
in a chosen profession.

during the college years. 
Friendships were found in 
classmates, roommates, 
fraternity brothers, and so- 
rority sisters that would last 
for a lifetime. These rela- 
tionships grew strong 
through the experiences 
that all students faced — 
good and bad grades, hard 
days, big dates, broken 
dates, new loves, broken 
hearts, and empty bank ac- 
counts. Through all, the 
good and the bad, friends 
were always there making 
memories that would last

Long before students began think- 
ing about whether or not to bring 
those old, tattered jeans back to 
school, the Welcome Back Committee 
was finalizing its plans for the first 
week's activities. The time finally 
came, and students began swarming 
around campus on Sunday. No sooner 
had they gotten settled in to their new 
surroundings, than Welcome Back 
week started in full force on Tuesday. 

First on the agenda was Playfair, 
which gave everyone a chance to get 
acquainted and renew old friendships. 
The games drew a lot of attention, not 
only from students, but also photog- 
raphers from the Birmingham Post- 
Herald who covered the event. Imme- 
diately following Playfair was the an- 
nual favorite, "Dinner on the Dirt." 
SAGA provided an all-you-can-eat pic- 
nic-style dinner for the traditional 

Class meetings later in the evening 
provided everyone an opportunity to 
catch up on the latest developments 
affecting their lives for the coming 
year. But the biggest event of the day, 
as is always true, was the Welcome 
Back Dance, held for the first time at 
Sloss Furnace. 

The outdoor location added to the 
festivity for which Samford dances are 
known. "Planning the dance was ex- 
citing because having it outside at 
Sloss was a new idea. We were just 
hoping it wouldn't rain," said Melanie 
Faulkner, a junior psychology major 
from Birmingham. The weather co- 

Sonnie Folds and Tam Tillman enjoy getting to 
know each other during "Dinner on the Dirt."

operated perfectly as the night was 
clear and a gentle breeze kept the tem- 
perature down. 

Classes began Wednesday, and to 
help soothe frazzled nerves, students 
attended a concert/beach party on the 
quad that night. Chevy 6 played for 
hours, once again giving students a 
chance to dance a little. The evening 
was capped off by a spectacular fire- 
works display. 

On Thursday, Campus Ministries 

hosted Vision '88, which gave every- 
one a chance to see which campus 
activities looked most interesting. Alsc 
on the evening's agenda was the yearly 
Covenant Worship. 

TGIF! As weary undergrads would 
down their first week of school, David 
Kilbourne ministered to the soul, and 
later "Three Men and a Baby" min- 
istered to the sense of humor. Satur- 
day dawned wet and dreary, but that 
did not dampen the Bulldog spirit.

Welcome Back 

A significantly sized crowd turned out 
in spite of the weather to cheer 
Samford on at Jacksonville State. 

Carla Willis, Welcome Back Chair- 
man, had no previous SGA committee 
experience. "I didn't know what I was 
doing," said the junior nursing major 
af Birmingham, "but it gave me a 
:hance to work with and get to know a 

lot of people I wouln't have other- 
wise." Through careful planning and 
hard work the Welcome Back Com- 
mittee put together a week that had 
something to offer to everyone. 

According to Anita Howell, a fresh- 
man interior design major, "College is 

SO great!" -Melanie Faulkner

It was inevitable. The summer had 
to come to an end, and another 
school year was about to begin. But 
for some students, this year was going 
to be different. During the last week of 
August, approximately 650 students 
arrived on campus as Freshmen. 

"How do you get to the computer 
lab?", "Which side do I hold the cafe 
tray on?", " Can someone help me do 
this college algebra homework?", 
"Who was that gorgeous guy?!" — 
These were the typical questions that 
could be heard from freshmen on cam- 

Many of the questions that freshmen 
asked were answered in their Fresh- 
man Forum classes. Freshmen Forum 
(also known as "Freshmen Boredom" 
to those who were required to take it) 
was a one-hour class that was fairly 
new to Samford. It was set up to help 
new students learn where everything 
was located on the campus, to tell stu- 
dents what classes were required of 
them, and to introduce students to oth- 
er freshmen with their same major. 
Basically, the class was established to 
organize and unify the freshmen class. 
Also trying to organize and unify the 
freshmen were the freshmen class of- 
ficers. This year's officers were Scott 
McBrayer-President, Marysha Tyler- 
Vice-President, Heather Meincke- 
Secretary, and Alicia Pagan-Treasurer. 
These four officers worked hard to 
make this year a good one for the class. 
The first meeting they held was the 
Homecoming meeting. Here, the stu-

Burnham take time to pose for a quick shot as

dents nominated girls for Freshman 
Homecoming attendant and guys for 
F'reshman Escort. After the elections, 
Amy Christmas from Evansville, In- 
diana, was selected as the attendant, 
and Phillip Moussakhani from Stone 
Mountain, Georgia, was named escort. 
As President of the freshmen class, 
Scott McBrayer was a member of the 
Organization Advisory Board. He rep- 
resented the freshmen in all issues 
concerning everything from open- 
dorm policies to the Freshmen's Step- 
Sing performance. There was a good 
deal of responsibility put on McBrayer 
and the other three officers, but with 
such a great group to lead, they ex- 
perienced nO problems. -GinaLuna

Plastic beads, Cajun food, laughter, 
all that jazz — Mardi Gras came 
not to Bourbon Street but 
Samford. The theme of Mardi Gras 
was carried out during Homecoming, 
the week of October 24-29. 

The week started Monday morning 
with a special Homecoming Convoca- 
tion. The day proceeded quickly to the 
afternoon and afternoon to evening 
when we heard from the Extras on the 
lawn of Vail dorm. Immediately fol- 
lowing the concert shots rang though 
the night and smoke hung loosely in 
the cool air as fireworks could be seen 
from all over campus. 

Tuesday ushered itself in with the 
celebration of Cajun Night in our be- 
loved Cafe. New Orleans came to the 
Cafe with spicy Cajun fried chicken 
and shrimp gumbo as two of the spe- 

Thursday brought Red-and-Blue 
Day to the campus along with the an- 
ticipation of the upcoming pep rally 
and crowning of a new Homecoming 
Queen. The pep rally featured cool air, 
warm hearts and high spirits. The 
Dipptones played 60's music that kept 
the Samford crowd rocking. The 
Samford Varsity cheerleaders led 
cheer after cheer to keep spirits flow- 
ing as the Bull Dolls continued the 
Mardi Gras spirit by throwing beads 
and performing a dance routine. Even 
through all the fun, tension mounted 
as the Homecoming Court was . . . 

Cheerleaders Briley Sheehan and Jamie Lamb 
boost the crowds spirits and encourage chanting 
during the Homecoming game. 

Being new at the Homecoming activities means 
nothing to the freshmen but a chance to show off 
their talent and creativity to the rest of the 

Students enjoy the company of friends and the 
chance to socialize during the excitement of the

snapped everywhere as Delta Zeta's 
own Hope Haslam was crowned. A 
Human Relations major from Santa Fe, 
New Mexico, Hope was very involved 
on campus, having served on Campus 
Ministries' Executive Council and on 
Housing Staff as Vail's Head Resident 
Assistant. She was escorted by Mike 
Brock, a senior from Atlanta. Complet-

and Amy Smothers representing the 
Senior class and escorted by Matt Bur-

escorted by David Corts representing 
the Junior class, Susan Byrd escorted 
by Justin Rudd representing the soph- 
omore class, and Amy Christmas es- 
corted by Philip Moussakhani from 
the Freshman class. 

With the climax reached and the 
queen crowned, how could the week 
get better? Well, the night not only got 
better but the feeling didn't drop any 
either. Horsedrawn carriage rides, like 
the ones you'd find in New York's 
Central Park, took students, alumni 
and family around the center of cam- 
pus. As sun gave way to moonlight, the 
walk from the Student center to Leslie 
S. Wright Fine Arts building was lit 
with candle bags. This walk lit the way 
for those going to see the Broadway 
production of Neil Simon's "Broadway 
Bound." Those who attended the pro- 
duction followed to the lobby where 
ice cream sundaes awaited. 

Finally, the awaited day had arrived. 
The day started early with the "open 
house" of each department on campus. 

Once again, the campus turns into a winter won- 
derland as students spent the night before the 
big game rolling trees, bushes, signs, and even

past for alumni to view and remember. 
The game was led off by the in- 
troduction of the Homecoming Court 
as they paraded around the stadium in 

convertibles. Past Mr. and Miss 
Howards, Mr. and Miss Samfords, and 
Homecoming Queens were also intro- 

The game was most exciting with 
our own Bulldogs winning by a score 
of 30 — 13 against Mars Hill. There 
was never a dull moment for the fans. 
Red and blue shakers dotted the sta- 
dium the entire game.

How students managed to study 
and juggle all the activities that 
went on is a talent which only col- 
lege students possess and hold the 
key. With Mardi Gras a success 
and all back to normal, this key 
will be put back for next year's 
Homecoming with the hope that it 
will be as exciting as this year's. -

covered with irresistible Samford la- 
dies in November as the pageant 
opened up with a choreographed num- 
ber performed by the Junior Varsity 

To start the night off, the contestants 
paraded before the judges and audi- 
ence and displayed their glamour in 
the evening gown competition. As 
they exited the stage, they rushed to 
prepare for the next portion of the 
night — the talent competition. The 
girls crowded into the backstage dress- 
ing rooms where there was a flood of 
costumes, evening gowns, make-up, 
and curling irons. 

Although backstage may have been 
chaos, all the contestants emerged 

with poise and grace as they moved 
into the entertainment portion of the 
program. They dazzled the audience 
with a variety of dance routines and 
vocal pieces as well as drama and in- 
strumental performances. 

The girls participating in the pageant

From its distinctive copper dome 
and elegant Rotunda Club to 
classrooms and laboratories fea- 
turing the latest technology, the 
Dwight and Lucille Beeson Center for 
the Healing Arts was a unique exam- 
ple of classical architecture and func- 
tional design. 

Focal point of the 30,000-square foot 
Center for the Healing Arts was an 
open rotunda soaring 55 feet high. 
Hanging from the walls of the rotunda 
were four murals depicting healing 
scenes from the Bible. 

D. Jeffrey Mims of Southern Pines, 
N.C., a talented murals and fresco 
painter who used the technique of 
classical realism developed during the 
Italian Renaissance, was commis- 
sioned to paint the murals after a na- 
tional search two years ago. 

A bronze statue of a healing angel 
adorned a pedestal in the courtyard of 
the Center for the Healing Arts. 

The stately Center for the Healing Arts looks 
down over the campus from a high and lofty hill. 

The Angel of Mercy welcomes visitors to the 
center which houses the Ida V. Moffett School of 

Administration and guests enjoy the elegant at-

Rotunda Club 









^ * • 


The statue was cast in Italy by sculptor 
Urbano Buratti from a design by Bir- 
mingham artist Constantine Breton. 

The structure also housed the Ro- 
tunda Club, a beautifully appointed 
dining and club area with membership 
open to faculty, staff and alumni of 
Samford, and several guest rooms for 
housing campus speakers and other 

Members could choose to go through 
the buffet consisting of soup, salad and 
sandwich or make reservations to or- 
der from the menu and pay a higher 
price. Members were billed monthly 
for the charges. 

Southern Living magazine and 
Cooking Light magazine recipes were 
featured on the club's menu. Manager 
of the club Stephanie Sain said she 
worked on this project with Don Lo- 
gan, Executive Editor of Southern Liv- 
ing, who was also on the Board of 
Trustees at Samford . 

The food served at the Rotunda Club 
was prepared by Mariott Corporation. 
The head cook in charge of catering for 
Samford Dining Services was brought 
in to complete the staff at the club. 

The facilities consisted of a recep- 
tion room, the Stewart Library, the 
Marion room for reservation dining 
only, the Eastlake room for buffet, and 
the Jon Beeson dining room for small- 
party dining. 

The Rotunda Club sprang from an 
idea of Lucille Beeson, donator of the 
Healing Arts Center. Beeson designat- 
ed when she donated the money that 
she wanted included in the center a 
place for faculty and staff to get away. 

"This designated gift has enabled 
Samford University to modernize its 
facilities and also to provide a visually 
striking complement to an already 
beautiful campus," said President 
Thomas E. Corts. 

Artist D. Jeffrey Mims makes preliminary 
sketches and paints a subject for the murals in 
the Center for the Healing Arts. 

The Stewart Library offers a place for quiet read- 
ing and study for faculty and staff.

Once again, Fall Carnival proved 
to be an event where the 
Samford community came to- 
gether for one purpose. The carnival 
was one of the major fund raisers for 
the Summer Missions program. Along 
with other fund raisers, such as cookie 
deliveries and exam care packages 
throughout the year, Fall Carnival 
raised money for the Home Missions

It's 6:30 in the morning. My alarm 
goes off. and the annoying sound 
awakes me. My first instinct is to 
throw the clock across the room but 
instead I just hit snooze. Ten minutes 
later it goes off again, and I go through 
the same process until I'm frantically 
rushed to get to class on time. I go by 
the Cafe to grab a quick breakfast but 
since I left my I.D. in my room I can't 
get in. After some quick thinking I tell 
them I lost it, and they let me in "for 
breakfast only." 
Eventually I make it to class won- 


Mornings come to an early start and a 
fast start for many of us. Alarms go off 
early, but after pushing the snooze 
button a dozen times, we are forced to 
get ready in a hurry. It's off to the 
showers where we have to wait in line 
for a while and then back to the room 
to get ready for the day. Getting ready 
can often be a tough task for most of us 
as we rush to make it to our first class. 


After running across the quad, you 
make it to class just as the professor is 
shutting the door. You sit in your fa- 
vorite seat and prepare for another 
long and tedious hour of notes. Throw 
in some daydreams and a few yawns, 
and hopefully you will get out early. 
Even though class is usually the last 
thing on our minds, what are we here 
for anyway?!? 

dering if I will be able to make it 
through class without falling asleep. 
That in itself is an achievement. I hike 
across campus in order to get to my 
next class and get there just in time to 
grab a front row seat?! Anyway, as 
class ends I am faced with the dilem- 
ma of going to Convo. Those eight re- 
quired semester credits haunt me until 
I consent to go. But, before I can go to 
Convo I must stop by and check my 
mail box. The student center is bus- 
tling at this time of day. Off to the 
chapel for convo. I need to study! I 

have a quiz at 11:00, and I'm actually 
awake for this one but it goes by slow- 
ly. Maybe it's just my anticipation for 
"Days of Our Lives." Last week it en- 
ded in suspense. I can't wait to see if 
Roman and Diana survive. Everyone 
gathers around the big screen t.v. in 
the student center to see if they meet 
their fate. Of course, this episode ends 
leaving me hanging and I'm off to the 
Cafe for a little socialization. Not for 
food but socialization. Then it's off to 
work. These on-campus jobs are 
stimulating, but the pay is low. But

alk across the room. All at once he's 
rrounded by girls. I am quickly re- 

minded of the male/female ratio here. 
It isn't looking too promising. 

I finally give up on studying in the 
library and head to my room. It seems 
as though I've wasted hours trying to 
get organized to study and taking 
study breaks in between visiting ses- 

On the way up to my room, I run 
into a friend who is headed to Teddy's

must go. After an hour or so of visiting, 
we decide that it's time to go back to 
campus, and I must get back to stud-

But it just so happens that my favorite

have to shut it. The night goes on until

To go or not to go? That is the question. 
It is hard to decide whether to go to 
convocation, go to your room, or hang 
out in the student center and gossip 
with friends. Of course, if you need to 
study, convo is the best decision be- 
cause you can learn the material for a 
test and get convo credit. Whatever 
you decide, don't forget to stop by and 
check your mailbox first. 


Those who decide not to go to convo 
often spend time in the bookstore 
checking out the cards, looking 
through the magazines, buying the 
novel they have to read for their Eng- 
lish class, cashing checks, and buying 
gum and other snacks for the next 
class. The bookstore also has been 
known to be a great place for social-

When 12 o'clock comes around, stu- 
dents from all corners of the campus 
swarm the campus' number one place 
to scope and gossip — the cafe. As you

"Dormitory living is such an im-

ence," says sophomore Dianne

ety of living experiences, from what 
many considered as the "Beeson 
Country Club," to the "Davis Hall 

Beeson Woods, the recently de- 
veloped apartment-like living, con- 
tinued to be popular among 
Samford students. Senior resident 
assistant, Amy Lawrence, stated 
that "Beeson is a gradual change to 
an apartment atmosphere and offers 
modern conveniences not seen in 
the other housing developments on 
Samford's campus." Lawrence add- 
ed, "I have enjoyed living in Beeson 
Woods my senior year." 

Helen Middlebrooks, a manage- 
ment major, agreed with Lawrence. 
"Beeson's laundry conveniences, 
television variety, and kitchen fa- 
( ilities far outweigh any inconven- 
ience that the extra walk may 

On the other side of the coin, 
freshman Kelly Newsome, from 
Roebuck, was happy she was a Vail 
Davis resident. "Not having air con- 

ditioning and sharing a hall bathroom 
have not been problems. In fact I realy 
like the open door policy and the 
friendliness of Vail Davis students." 

A, B, and C dorms were renovated 
during the summer to improve the liv- 
ing conditions for those students. A 
large number of A, B, and C residents 
were freshmen which allowed them to 
become acquainted with other stu- 
dents who were also spending their 
first semester away from home. 

Samford encouraged students to re- 
side on campus because this allowed 

for more campus involvement opor- 
tunities. A four year veteran of dor- 
mitory living, senior Kristen Lucas 
stated, "I have the rest of my life to 
live in an apartment, but only four 
years to fully experience college." 

Whether developing new friend- 
ships or learning to adapt to new 
and exciting situations, dorm living 
was a popular "thing to do" at 

Samford. -Suzanne Shoemake

After being in the cafe for an hour and 
a half, its time to take a break and get 
some fresh air out in the quad. The 
quad, which is the focal point of the 
campus, is graced by the Centennial 
Walk. The area is also a great place for 
studying, sleeping, catching some rays, 
playing frisbee and football, or just 
wasting some time between classes. 


When classes finish for the day, many 
students work at jobs on campus such 
as computer services, the post office, 
lab assistants, administration offices, 
resident assistants, and various other 
positions. These jobs provide students 
with a little extra spending money and 
are more convenient than off-campus 


Not everyone has the afternoon free. 
Many students' afternoons are full of 
more classes and labs. These labs sup- 
plement lecture material in Biology. 
Chemistry and foreign language class- 
es with hands-on experience. Al- 
though labs occupy most of the af- 
ternoon, they often prove most helpful 
to students in these classes. 

Student Life 




Five o'clock is prime gathering time in 
the cafe. After all, the cafe is the social 
hub of the university and all students 
gather to socialize and at least survey 
the possibilities for dinner. If you're 
lucky you'll find something to eat and 
be full when you leave. But if not, you 
can always hit Johnny Ray's for a 
barbeque sandwich and a slice of co- 
conut creme pie. 


After dinner, still other campus ac- 
tivities require your attention. It may 
be play practice, discipleship groups, 
intramural sports, project group meet- 
ings, sorority and fraternity meetings 
or other responsibilities. Being in- 
volved on campus is something many 
people strive for, yet sometimes it re- 
quires a lot of time. 


When the sun goes down, a trip to the 
library is usually part of the schedule. 
Students needing to research are usu- 
ally found on the second floor. Those 
who are serious about studying can 
normally find a haven on the third or 
fourth floor. However, you will gen- 
erally find most students involving 
themselves in social activity on the 
first floor.

'As the day draws to a close and morn- 
ing approaches, the campus shuts 
down. However, the Waffle House of- 
fers 24 hours of coffee to help students 
cram for their tests in the morning. 
These "all-nighters" are essential to 
college life. And so, the day in the life

OPEN DORMS — a controver 
sial issue on campus for quite 
some time. Last year the Stu- 
dent Government Association de- 
cided to tackle this once unheard of 
idea. Todd Heifner headed up a 
team to research and construct a 
proposal worthy of the Student Body 
and Administration. 

A survey of Samford students was 
conducted. Of the 1,039 students 
polled, 1,013 were in favor of open 

dorms. Forty-two colleges and univer- 
sities that are equivalent to Samford 
were polled. Every school had visi- 
tation privileges. Eighty-three percent 
had in-room privileges, and 57% had 
open dorms seven days a week for 24 
hours a day. Fourteen percent had 
open dorms for three full weeks out of 
the month. 

The proposal, considered the most 
extensive presented to the Adminis- 
tration, was presented only to be re- 

jected with the following concerns: 
security, fear of imposing it on 
someone not in favor of it, and the 
conservatism of the constituency. 

After the proposal was turned 
down another proposal was submit- 
ted asking for seven days of open 
dorms for the fall semester. This 
propsal was approved. Although 
this was not the original , SGA was 
satisfied with the outcome. Com- 
menting on the tug-of-war, SGA 
President Steve Davidson said. 
The issue is not over yet. SGA is 
planning to either submit another 
proposal or ask for a certain num- 
ber of days in the Spring." ^onnt*raid«

Step Sing '89 returned the annual 
Samford event to it's former ex- 
citement and glory. "This year's 
presentation was the best I believe it's 
ever been," said Rick Traylor, asso- 
ciate dean of students. 

The program not only featured the 
return of the social fraternities, who 
boycotted the event last year, and the 
full participation of the social soror- 
ities, but also the introduction of a new 
group, the Black Student Organiza- 
tion. Step Sing made a successful 
comeback because "the students 
missed it from last year," according to 
Step Sing Director, Chip Colee. 

In efforts to re-establish this long 
standing tradition, the Step Sing Com- 
mittee offered incentives for participat- 
ing groups. For the first time, the first 
three places were named in each cat- 
egory. In addition to the groups in 
these places receiving trophies, they 
also received cash prizes. The overall 
winner, better known as the Sweep- 
stakes Winner, also received a dance 
that was given in their honor by the 
Student Government Association. 

With 1 5 groups participating in Step 
Sing '89, the stage was set for two sold- 
out performances February 10th and 
11th. The theme for this year's pro- 
duction was "Dancing in the Streets."

business management major from 
Ozark, Alabama. 

After hours of practice and prep- 
aration, the students were able to see 
the entire show on Thursday, Febru- 
ary 9th, at dress rehearsal. Enthusi- 
asm and excitement filled the air onl 
that night as each group performed for 
the other groups and the student body. 

On Saturday night, all of the hard! 
work, time and money that each or-l 
ganization had put into their shows 
finally paid off. After two nights of per- 
forming for the judges it finally came 
down to the top three shows in each 
category: women's division, men's di-j 
vision and mixed division. 

In the women's division, Alpha Delta!

with their show, "Mysteries of the Ori-

special patriotic "Salute to America."

hands down. Their extravagant show

sire to win for the fourth time a row. 
The themes of the organizations per- 
forming differed as much as each or- 

ganization. The sisters of Phi Mu paid 
"A Tribute to Elvis," the sisters of Zeta 
Tau Alpha presented "Spies in the 
Night," the Senior class recounted the 
past and bid a fond farewell to their 
Alma Mater. Also, in the men's divi- 
sion, the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi let 
the audience experience the emotions 
surrounding "Hello and Goodbye." 

The members of the Black Student 
Organization and the Sisters of Alpha 
Kappa Alpha, the first black sorority 
on campus performed together for the 
first time in Step Sing in the mixed

such as "Rockin' Robin" and "Where

a "Salute to Motown."

many long hours to perfect their show. 
Learning the Japanese National An- 
them was no easy task, but through 
each sister's dedication they were 
able to win the hearts of the judges 
and the Sweepstakes trophy for the 
fourth year. 

A great deal of the sisters' success 
went to the behind-the-scenes people 
who helped put the show together. 
Tracey Kornegay headed up the com-

arranged the music from the "Siamese

In the aftermath of what has been 
recognized as the stalest presiden- 
tial race in history, this election 
would definitely not be one to tell your 
kids about. As a whole, the election 
lacked pizzazz and an emphasis on 
the key issues. Beginning with a field 
of candidates in the winter of '86, the 
race whittled down to two candidates 
— Vice-President George Bush and 
Massachusetts Governor Michael 
Dukakis. The Republicans slung mud 
at the Democrats, and while wiping 
the mud out of their eyes, the Dem- 
ocrats saw an increasingly liberal 
magnate preaching their party's pol- 

Certainly, the youth of today grew 
up under a Reagan revolution, as ex- 
pressed by the results of the mock 
election sponsored by Alpha Phi Ome- 
ga before the national election on No- 
vember 8. An overwhelming percent- 
age of Samford students voiced a 
strong Republican preference. " As a 
result of growing up under the security 
generated by the Reagan Administra- 
tion, many young adults may feel com- 
pelled to support Bush, as a form of 
precedence," explains Michele Bend- 
er, history major from Mobile, "This, 
however, is not to say that the Dem- 
ocratic party offers more or is the less- 
wide World Photos 

er of the two evils, but is to exemplify 
the complete passive ignorance of 
many active voters." 

The most tragic characteristic of the 
1988 Presidential Election was the in- 
tentional and habitual avoidance of 
the issues. Issues such as Social Se- 
curity, day-care for working mothers, 
abortion, and furloughs for prisoners 
would surface, but were pushed aside 
by the image portrayed by the can- 
didates and the media. It is a fact that 
most people are swayed by images. 
Advertisements and stereotyping 
flooded the media as the campaign 
raged on. The 'L' word, Iran-Contra 
scandal, and a furloughed criminal 
named Willie Horton consumed the 

The voters had the last say as to 
which candidate ran the most influ- 
ential campaign, and their choice was 
George Bush. Through the mud and 
tainted issues, the American public 
waded and exercised their greatest 

right tO VOTE. -Michele Bender and Whitney

ery few college stu- 
dents ever started 
their own company, 
experienced a merger, 
became president of that company and 
planned to expand the company's op- 
eration, but Jon Corts did it all. He was 
a junior public administration major 
from Winston Salem, North Carolina 
and was president and chairman of the 
board of the Samford Computer Cor- 

In the summer of 1987, Jon Corts 
founded a student services company 
called Collegequest that assisted high 
school students with tutoring, appli- 
cations for college and other needs. At 
first, he worked out of his dorm room 
using an answering machine. The 
business soon grew to such a size that 
he had to move into office space in 

While the business was growing, 
Robert David, dean of the School of 
Business, had a similar dream of a stu- 
dent-run corporation. Three students, 
Jon Jordan, Allegra Jordan and Stacy 
Barbee, soon founded the Samford 
Student Computer Corporation. In the 
fall of 1988, Jon Corts approached De- 
an David about a merger of the two 
companies, and, on October 1st, the 
Samford Student Computer Corpora- 
tion bought out Collegequest. At that 
time, neither company was incorpo- 
rated. A six member steering commit- 
tee was set up with the responsibility 
of incorporating the SSCC. This pro- 
cess was complete on November 4th. 

The offices of the SSCC were located 
on the third floor of the Dwight W. 
Beeson Business Building. In exchange 
for office space, the SSCC provided 
general computer services to Samford. 

At its beginning, the Samford Stu- 
dent Computer Corporation employed 
only 15 people, but Corts planned for 
the employment level to reach 50 em- 
ployees. Corts soon began planning to 
open a computer retail store on cam- 
pus and finding a location for this 
store. The store opened in the spring 
and was located in the Samford ad- 
ministration building. It offered com- 
puter hardware and software at a dis- 
count price to students. Due to the 

Student Computer Corporation 

nature of the SSCC and the fact that it 
was a student-run company, Corts said 
that the SSCC was held responsible to 
the business department. Dean David 
was an advisor to the company and 
occupied a seat on the board of di- 

Corts commented, "It would not 
have been possible without the sup- 
port of the administration, faculty, 
business school and especially the 
computer services staff, who have 

been mOSt helpful." -Stacey Pickering

^r Fling activities came 

^-^ into full swing the last 

week in March. Laura Hicken was 
Spring Fling chairwoman for this year, 
and the committee planned activities 
that ran until Saturday night. 

The real kick-off of the Spring Fling 
activities was a Hawaiian Luau which 
was held in the cafe on Thursday 
night. To get everyone in the spirit of 
the night, each student was donned 
with a lei as they entered the cafe. 
Everyone enjoy the festive dinner and 
activities which included a limbo con- 
test between different campus organ- 
izations. Later that evening, a talent 
show was held in LSW with enter- 
tainment provided by participating or- 
ganizations. The money which was 

collected from this event went to the 
senior class gift fund which was used 
to purchase books for the Harwell G. 
Davis Library. 

Friday held another full day of ac- 
tivities with the election of Mr. and 
Miss Samford as a top priority. In the 
afternoon, swimming events allowed 
students to show off their abilities in 
the water and entertain their peers. 
Some of the events included the Belly 
Flop contest and the Greased Melon 
Race. The evening had many different 
activities to offer. The A Cappella 
Choir performed its annual Homecom- 
ing concert and celebrated the choirs 
50th Anniversary. Many choir alumni 
were in attendance for this special and 
memorable occasion. Across town, at 
the Botanical Gardens, another annual 
event, the Spring Fling Semi-Formal 

was held. 

Saturday came and the events began 
early as students participated in track j 
and field avents at Seibert Stadium. 
The fun-filled week was brought to an 
end as students gathered in LSW for 
the Spring Fling awards presentation. 
The overall winner for the week was 
announced and Alpha Delta Pi sorority 
walked away with the honors. The 
highlight of the presentation, however, 
was the announcement of Mr. and 
Miss Samford 1989 — Mr. Pat Eddins 
and Miss Hope Haslam. After the pres-' 
entations were over the crowd was en- 
tertained and inspired by the music of

composer Steven Curtis Chapman.

WORKING ... In late October, the 
Samford University Theatre presented 
its first production for the 1988-89 
school year. "Working" was a musical 
about the different lifestyles of the 
working world and portrayed jobs 
varying from a "lady of the night" to a 
business person. The musical not only 
portrayed these different jobs, but it 
also showed the dignity and the value 
of each person and the task they per- 

Harold Hunt, head of the speech and 
theater department, commented, 
"This musical will stretch the audi- 
ence's mind in the realization that 
everyone has a job to do and all jobs 
serve a purpose." 

The production had a very large 
cast, and the new year had brought 
many new faces to appear and add 
talent to the Samford University The- 
atre. The production was directed by 
Harold Hunt. Assisting him were mu- 
sic director-David Gaines, choreogra- 
pher-Mary Forshee, scenic director- 
Eric Olson, light design-Mark Fuller, 
publicity-Barbara Olson, and cos- 

tUmeS-Kristi Self. -Elizabeth Tester

THE BEAST . . . Colored with the 
courtly traditions of the 16th century, 
"The Masque of Beauty and the Beast" 
was presented in the Ben F. Harrison 
during the first week in December. 
Barbara Olson, the costume designer 
for the play, said that it would be per- 
formed like a 16th century masque 
which "was a form of court entertain- 
ment that included elaborate cos- 
tumes." The play utilized five 
grotesques which were characteristic 
of the 16th century classics. These 
"grotesques" were players dressed as 
creatures such as gargoyles who were 
used to move props around and some- 
times served as part of the scenery. 

Mrs. Olson referred to the play as 
"sort of a child's play, but suitable for 
adults." Several groups of students 
from places such as the King's Ranch 
and the Hannah Home were in attend- 
ance at one of several performances. 
According to Olson, a children's show 
had not been done at Samford for sev- 
eral years, and this particular play had 
never been performed by the Samford 
University Theater. 

The play was directed by senior the- 
ater major Linda Pierson. Barbara Ol- 
son, along with speech instructor Eric 
Olson, were in charge of costume, sce- 
nery, and lights. The members of the 
cast were headed by Julie Averett who 
played the Beauty and Charles Snell 
who played the Beast. Other cast 
members were Laura Kilgore, narrator; 
Marty Johnson, merchant; Lisa Carter, 
1st daughter; Kristi Self, 2nd daughter; 
and Alex Collum, solicitor. The cast of 
grotesques included Paul Harmon, Ja- 
net Lewis, Sharon Powell, Teri Stew- 
art, and Joel Watson. Amywaiker

THE DIVINERS . . . "Unusual" and 
"mystical" were the words used by 
director Harold Hunt as he described 
the SU Theater's production of "The 
Diviners", which played in the Har- 
rison Theater during the week before 
Spring Break. The play was set in a 
small town during the Great Depres- 
sion of the 1930's. Its main characters 
included a young boy who, after al- 
most drowning, was terrified of water 
and a disenchanted preacher who had 
a special gift of "divining" or finding 
water through a mystical means. 

Professor Hunt said that he had 
wanted to do this play since it debuted 
in New York in 1980. "We're always 
looking for new things," he said, 
"things that are not necessarily Broad- 
way plays." Hunt said that he found 
the play "charming" because of its 
simple "folk" plot and characters. 
Having been raised on woodsy Sand 
Mountain in northern Alabama, Hunt 
said, "This is a 'Sand Mountain' kind 
of play." 

An excellent cast was something 
else that prompted Professor Hunt to 
include "The Diviners" on the sched- 
ule. He said he was working with an 
especially talented group of perform- 
ers. The cast for the production in- 
cluded Robert Lane as Buddy, Lisa 
Carter as Jennie Mae, Marty Johnson 
as Ferris, Jeff Gillam as C.C. Showers, 
Barbara Dawson as Norma, Teri Stew- 
art as Darlene, Linda Pierson as 
Goldie, Scott Slate as Basil, Paula 
Harmon as Louella, Jack Walker as 
Melvin, and Darren Dobbins as Dewey.

... As a part of the Birmingham Fes- 
tival of Art's Salute to France, the SU 
Theatre presented "The Farce of the 
Worthy Lawyer, Pierre Pathelin" on 
April 20th to 25th. The French comic 
masterpiece was accompanied by a 
colorful Medieval show including 
magic, tumbling, parades, poetry, 
dance, and more. 

"The Farce of Pierre Pathelin" had a 
conniving set of characters, including 
the good counselor Pathelin, the drap- 
er Guillaume Joceaulme, and the shep- 
herd Tibald Lambkin. 

Drama professors Eric and Barbara 
Olson directed the play which was 
adapted for the stage after it was trans- 
lated into English. Junior theatre major 
Julie Averett choreographed the show, 
which featured authentic Medieval 
dance. The show was also performed 
at Boutwell Auditorium and at the 
Ramada Civic Center. 

The main cast of characters includ- 
ed Brent Wadsworth as Pathelin, the 
lawyer; Paula Harmon as Guillemette, 
his wife; Marty Johnson as Joceaulme, 
the draper; Barbara Dawson as Lamb-

comment on 
Ministries and what it was doing for

Samford's Campus minister, said, "It's 
encouraging to observe students ex-

serve as strong role models to other 
students just by their sacrifices of time 
and energy. Those involved in mission 
teams are developing a balanced 
Christian lifestyle and seem to take 
Matthew 25 seriously. It's amazing 
how the difference one hour a week 
can make in the life of an inner city 
child, a juvenille at Family Court, or 
especially in the life of the student

Changing lives was what the annual 
Campus Ministries Spring Break 
trip to New Orleans was all about 
as many people were introduced to 
Christ. Fifty-three students, more than 
ever before, went on the six-day mis- 
sion trip and stayed in the Vieux Carre 
Baptist Church one block away from 
Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. 
The students spent one morning 
each working at the Brantley Center, a 
Baptist mission for the homeless. In 
the afternoons, they held a concert in 
Jackson Square. The concert consisted 
of puppet shows, singing, pantomine 
and drama, all with a Christian mes- 

However, the main emphasis was on 
the witnessing to street people at 
night. Freshman Alicia Whitt said, 
"The trip made me look at street peo- 
ple in a different way. They're just like 
us. They are normal people, but 
they've made some mistakes 
that put them where they

Junior Darissa Brooks, 
who took her third trip to 
New Orleans this year, 
said it 
t o 



people love even though they were 
dirty and had been drinking because 
"they need love and are so honest 
about it." 

Freshman Scott Austin said he 
learned the power of prayer on the 
trip. "Just to ask for something in Je- 
sus' name and see it happen was amaz- 

"The power we have through God in 
us is not something to ignore," Brooks 
said. "God calls us to work all the time, 
not just on mission trips. Samford is a 
haven, and New Orleans is just one 
small area of the world that needs 

God's love." -Tracey Shepard

with the love of Jesus Christ." 
This was Joy Kirkland's description of 
the clowning and mime ministry at 
Samford. Joy along with Tina Cargile 
were the presidents of this ministering 
team. The group was called the "Son 
Reflectors." This fall there were thir- 
teen members who met regularly to 
practice their skits and mimes. Many 
of the skits were written by the mem- 
bers themselves. Three years ago the 
clowning ministry began through the 
efforts of Nancy Mann and Barbara 
Perin. Each year the clowning group 
grew and expanded into a mime min- 
istry as well. 

The "Son Reflectors" performed for 
children's hospitals, churches, carni- 
vals, nursing homes, on campus or 
anywhere the opportunity arose. The 
group had more offers than they could 

Their newest project was dealing 
with head trauma patients from the 
rehabilitation center, Phoenix Rising. 
The group worked with ther- 
D Q f | Qrk fi nn apists and psychologists at 
^Ullliy the Center to learn of the 
problems each patient was deal- 
ing with. They then interpreted

Each Saturday morning about 9:00 
a.m., a group of Samford students 
met in Pittman Circle to make their 
way downtown into the inner city. 
There, at an inner city playground, the 
children of the area gathered to play 
with the students. The children 
learned love, acceptance, and most of 
all, Jesus Christ. 

This inner city mission was a 
favorite tradition of Samford. Many 
students were very dedicated and 
committed to this worthy cause. This 
year many exciting things happened. 
In November, a Thanksgiving carnival 
was sponsored by the students. Eric 
Spivey, co-ordinator of the Inner City 
Missions program, was able to round 
up countless donations of food and 
prizes to help make the day a success. 
Well over 200 children were there to 
participate in the games, fellowship, 
and fun! Samford's basketball team, 
band and the clowning group, "Son 
Reflections," along with several 
Samford students, worked together to 
make the day a memorable one. 

December brought Kid's Day. This 

semesterly event was looked forward 

to by a great many. Sixty

annual Christmas celebration, 
was held November 29. 
The service of advent told of the 
unique traditions and symbols of 
Christmas. The lighting of the advent 
wreath, the hanging of the greens, the 
first Christmas tree, and the lighting of

As the largest pri- 
vately supported 
and fully accred- 
ited coeducation- 
al institution of higher 
learning in Alabama, 
Samford University existed 
to serve and motivate each 
member of the University 
Community to a life of in- 
tegrity and goodness. As a 
community of scholars ded- 
icated to the search for truth 
under the Lordship of Jesus 
Christ, the University was 
committed to the intellectu- 
al, social, spiritual, and 
physical enrichment of its 

students. A Samford educa- 
tion encompassed beliefs, 
causes, and values that de- 
termined the quality of life. 
Committed to the discovery, 
preservation, and dissemi- 
nation of knowledge, the 
University in its undergrad- 
uate curricula provided 
broad-based exposure to 
and experience in the arts 
and humanities, natural and 
social sciences, and certain 

Founded by a group of ed- 
ucational, economic, and re- 
ligious leaders, the school 
was chartered in 1841 and 

opened its doors on January 
3, 1842, in Marion, Alabama, 
as Howard College. It sur- 
vived two destructive fires, 
and the partial paralysis of 
the Civil War and Recon- 
struction. In 1887 it was re- 
located in Birmingham, and 
in 1957 the institution was 
moved to its present cam- 

In 1920 Howard College 
gained membership in the 
Southern Association of 
Colleges. The establishment 
of the Teacher Education 
Division in 1914 and Divi- 
sion of Pharmacy in 1927 

highlighted the school' 
continuous growth through- 
out the years. The historic 
and renowned Cumberlanc 
School of Law, establishec 
in 1847 at Lebanon, Tennes- 
see, was acquired in 1961. 

In 1965 the master's de- 
gree program was reinsti- 
tuted. This development 
coupled with the existing 
diversity of degree pro- 
grams, resulted in Howarc 
College's official elevatior 
to university status on No- 
vember 9, 1965. 

In the same year the nev\ 
university was named foi

With a student-faculty ra- 

tio of 15:1, the professors at 
Samford were very involved 
in the lives of their students. 
In their educational prepa- 
ration, faculty members had 
earned degrees from more 
than 90 colleges and univer- 
sities in the United States, 
France, Canada, and Germa- 
ny. They shared their ex- 
periences and knowledge 
with students in a well- 
rounded, fully-accredited 
academic program which 
led to a liberal education, a 
deep appreciation of cultur- 
al pursuits, and a sound 
background for graduate 

and professional study.

One of President 
Thomas Cort's 
many plans for 
the year was to 
re-establish the football pro- 
gram. During the year, the 
football team passed many 
milestones: the first season 
in Division I-AA, the first 
time in scholarship play, 
and the first time for many 
eager- but-inexperienced 
freshmen players. 

To this list was added the 
plans for a new three- 
leveled multipurpose press 
box facility for Seibert Sta- 
dium, plans for which were 

announced by President 
Corts in October. Manpower 
was a major part of Bulldog 
football, but not far behind 
were good facilities. Dr. 
Corts told the Birmingham 
News in September, "We've 
been like pilgrims in the 
desert. We've been dwelling 
in tents. We're going to 
change all that." The tents 
served their purpose for Di- 
vision III games because 
they didn't have the media 
coverage that Division I-AA. 
Coach Bowden was very 
enthusiastic about the 
plans, saying, "We will be 

able to facilitate these larger 
schools we're playing now 
who bring television and ra- 
dio crews." Dr. Corts ex- 
pressed that media brings a 
lot of attention to sports, and 
"The media comes to a win- 
ning program." 

The construction for the 
press box began in late 
spring and completion was 
proposed to be in the fall of 

1989. -Mike Easterling

The Buchanan Award Honors Sarnford's Best 



ohn H. 
ward for 
Baching at 


harmacy professor 
Dr. Edwin L. Hall 
named the 
recipient of 
the opening 
invocation in September. 
tie award was based on the 
lections of the graduating 
ass of 1988. The class sub- 
itted their suggestions in 
ay, and after all the votes 
ere in, Dr. Hall was chosen 
i id presented with the 
M |vard. 

"I was totally surprised," 
1 e said of the award. "I was 

starting my third year here 
at Samford, and thought I 
would never even be con- 
sidered." He pointed out 
that the award had previ- 
ously gone to those acade- 
micians who had logged 
more than a few hours in- 
side the school's gates. "The 
past two years' winners 
have been here between 10 
and 15 years," he said, ad- 
ding, "so my selection was a 
complete shock." 

Provost William Hull pre- 
sented the award, estab- 
lished in 1965 and named 
after a former active trustee 

and life trustee for Samford, 
John H. Buchanan. The 
Provost said the citation was 
a "tribute of distinction" 
and congratulated Hall for 
his efforts. 

Professor Hall came to 
Samford in the fall of 1986, 
after a seven-year tenure at 
the University of Oklahoma. 
There he was presented 
with a senior class award for 
outstanding professor in the 
School of Pharmacy. "But it 
is nothing like this," he said. 

Professor Hall came to 
Samford out of loyalty to his 
roots. A native of Montgom- 

ery, he said he "wanted to 
get back to my home." Hall 
said he hoped to continue 
teaching at Samford, saying 
it placed "good emphasis on 
teaching" and had great 
"interaction" with students.

Brooks Hall was the

and Sciences. With 
an offering of more than 40 
majors and with eleven de- 
partment heads leading the 
faculty, this college was one 
of the most active on cam-

been a part of Samford for 21 
years, held his Ph.D. from

Dr. Allen's objectives for 
these Arts and Science ma- 
jors were many. First of all, 

he wanted to prepare the 
students for a satisfying, 
useful life in the cultural 
setting in which to pursue a 
vocation or profession. A 
search for truth through 
aquisition of factual knowl- 
edge and through a sincere 
evaluation of this knowl- 
edge was strongly empha- 
sized. The school also 
stressed an enlightened con- 
cern for human values and 
an understanding of a code 
of behavior and thought 
based on Christian princi- 
ples. Most importantly, 
however, the professors of 

this school sought to foster a 
sense of involvement and

Producing Leaders For The Future 

D wight M. Beeson 
Hall housed the 
School of Busi- 
ness at Samford. 
'his school sought to pro- 
Mce graduates who had the 
oility to become leaders 
ithin the American busi- 
es system. As described 
y the Business school: 
This potential for leader- 
nip" required an ability to 
link clearly and creatively 
,oout the problems and op- 
Drtunities of the capitalis- 
c business enterprise sys- 
jim, to understand the 
inctions of business and 
aw they relate to our so- 

ciety, and to have a keen 
sense of the moral and eth- 
ical dimensions of business 
decisions. This college was 
administered by twenty pro- 
fessors, assistant professors, 
and instructors chaired by 
Vice President and Dean 
Robert T. David after only a 
one year tenue. He had his 
Master in Business Admin- 
istration from Harvard Uni- 
versity and taught as an as- 
sociate professor. 

The young entreprenuers 
of Samford joined Dean Da- 
vid's unique Venture Cap- 
ital Corporation over the 
summer to give students a 

chance to see something en- 
tirely their own become a 
success. It exposed students 
to the "real" business 
world. In this way , students 
could serve the community 
and contribute to its eco- 
nomic development. 

Undergraduates were en- 
couraged to gain valuable 
experience and take advan- 
tage of the large surround- 
ing business community in 
co-op, internship and ex- 
ternship programs. This de- 
partment also granted the 
highest number of degrees 
per total enrollment.

The newest part of 
the Samford fam- 
ily was the School 
of Divinity found- 
ed in February of 1988 by 
vote of the Board of Trust- 
ees. In one sense this action 
fulfilled the founding pur- 
pose of the University 
adopted in 1841 which pro- 
vided for "the establish- 
ment of a Theological Insti- 
tution, connected with the 
college hereinafter estab- 
lished." Dr. Timothy George 
was elected as the school's 
first dean. The school prom- 
ised an interdenominational 

focus, yet directed by use of 
the Baptist Faith and Mes- 
sage statememt, without be- 
ing apologetic about that de- 
nominational linkage. It was 
intended to offer a spirit of 
goodwill and to operate in 
an interdenominational, 
evangelical manner. 

The first goals were for 30 
students a year and 2 new 
professors for each year. 
The Master of Divinity 
would be offered in the 
standard three-year gradu- 
ate-professional degree in 
ministry. The course of 
study was designated by the 

faculty to prepare ministers 
for leadership positions in 
church-related settings. It 
would be a head and heart 
community of believers and 
scholars seeking to offer stu- 
dents a unique opportunity 
to combine both faith and 

Samford University con- 
tinued to be the leading in- 
stitution of the Alabama 
Baptist Convention for 
training students in chris- 
tian vocations. The Depart- 
ment of Religion and Phi- 
losophy faculty was 
respected for scholarship, 

warm friendliness, and rolJf 
modeling for youthful the

k LAW 




emory Leake 
Robinson Hall 
was the home 
for Samford's 
Cumberland School of Law 
directed by Dean Parham H. 
Williams. The Cumberland 
School of Law, established 
in 1847, was the oldest 
school of law west of the 
Appalachian Mountains. Its 
program was two-fold: to 
maintain high standards of 
legal education and to pre- 
pare men and women for 
the practice of law. The 
school emphasized trial ad- 
vocacy and provided legal 
training for those planning 

to enter business or public 
service. The law school was 
fully approved by all nation- 
al and state accrediting 
agencies. Last years 184 
graduates were eligible to 
take the bar examination in 
any state. 

The student body consist- 
ed of more than 600 stu- 
dents from 30 states and 
three foreign countries and 
represented 140 undergrad- 
uate schools. 

The Cumberland School 
of Law had 12,000 alumni of 
whom 6000 were still living. 
These were to be found in 
all 50 states as well as sev- 

eral foreign countries. It 
numbered among its gradu- 
ates numerous members of 
the Federal and State 
Judiciaries, including Jus- 
tices of the Supreme Courts 
of the United States, Justices 
of the Supreme Courts of 
many states, and Circuit and 
District judges, U.S. Sena- 
tors and Representatives, 
and State Governors.

A Study for Performance 

John H. Buchanan Hall 
contained the School 
of Music's classrooms, 
offices, and practice 
rooms of this depart- 
ment chaired by Dean L. 
Gene Black. Dr. Black was a 
veteran of the Samford fac- 
ulty dating back to 1965. He 
held his Ph.D. from the Uni- 
versity of Alabama. 

Music study at Samford 
was essentially a three-fold 
program, including training 
in basic musicianship, train- 
ing in specailized profes- 
sional areas, and studies in 
the liberal arts. The core of 
the program was musician- 

ship-continuous study in 
music performance, includ- 
ing solo and ensemble ex- 
periences, along with exten- 
sive work in music theory. 
Featured programs in the 
School of Music included 
Voice, Keyboard, Strings, 
Brass, Woodwinds, Percus- 
sion, Church Music, Music 
Theory and Composition, 
History and Literature of 
Music, and Music Educa- 

The faculty consisted of 
professional musicians and 
educators with a wide range 
of musical experience- 
composers, music educa- 

tors, theorists, musicolo- 
gists, and artists. 

University musical organ- 
izations included the A Cap- 
pella Choir, Band, Opera 
Workshop, University Cho- 
rale, Samford Community 
Choir, and Jazz Band. The 
resource of the Leslie S. 
Wright Auditorium as a first 
class facility gave the music 
family an excellent hall for 

performing. -LeAnneCreen

The Ida V. Moffett 
School of Nursing 
found its new 
home in one of 
Samford's most attractive 
architectural designs. Dean 
Marian K. Baur directed this 
ever expanding program. 
Her Ph.D. was from Peabody 
College of Nashville and she 
had been at Samford for two 
years. The school was allied 
with the Baptist Medical 
Center to offer programs 
leading to the Associate of 
Science in Nursing, a two 
year program, and the Bach- 
elor of Science in Nursing, a 
four year study. 

The faculty of the School 
of Nursing believed that 
nursing was an art and a sci- 
ence utilizing special 
knowledge. The art of nurs- 
ing was caring. The science 
of nursing was built on the- 
oretical foundations ac- 
quired from biological, 
physical, and behavioral sci- 
ences. The combination of 
the art and science made 
nursing a unique practiced 
discipline, which was goal 
directed through the use of 
the nursing process. 

Challenging opportunities 
also existed for the experi- 
enced Licensed Practical 

Nurse. The majority of stu- 
dents completed require- 
ments for the Baccalareate 
nursing degree while em- 
ployed as registered nurses. 
Clinical experiences for the 
School of Nursing were pro- 
vided in the Baptist Medical 
Centers, The Children's 
Hospital, St. Vincent's Hos- 
pital, Lakeshore Hospital, 
and many other facilities. 
The latest in equipment and 
facilities, housed in the new 
Center for the Healing Arts 
provided opportunities for 
skill and content mastery.

Preparing For A Future In Medicine 

Robert I. Ingalls Sr. 
Hall was head- 
quarters for the 
School of Pharma- 
cy and the leadership of De- 
an Timothy Norman 
Burelle. The Dean was a vi- 
tal part of the Pharmacy 
School since 1973 when he 
assumed the position. 

The School of Pharmacy 
was established January 31, 
1927, in Birmingham, Ala- 
bama, as the Howard Col- 
lege Department of Pharma- 
cy. The Department grew 
steadily and became the Di- 
vision of Pharmacy in 1938. 

Designation as the Samford 
University School of Phar- 
macy occured in 1965 when 
Howard College reorganized 
to become Samford Univer- 

The faculty was made up 
of approximately seventy 
full-time, part-time, and ad- 
junct faculty members. All 
full-time faculty members 
with the rank of Assistant 
Professor or higher held the 
doctoral degree in their re- 
spective field. These de- 
grees were earned in many 
different institutions from 
throughout the United 


The primary mission of 
this school was to prepare 
men and women for suc- 
cessful careers as pharma- 
cists. The school offered a 
five year program for the 
Bachelor of Science in Phar- 
macy and a six year curric- 
ulum for the Doctor of Phar- 
macy degree. 

This school was one of 
only two pharmacy schools 
in the state of Alabama. The 
graduates of this school 
were in high demand and 
chose from multiple career 
opportunities. Birmingham 

was the medical i enter of 
Alabama and the Pharmai \ 
school cooperated with ovei 
45 hospitals and medical fa- 
cilities in the local area.

Students who had 
acheived academic 
excellence at 
Samford were 
acknowledged on Honors 
Day which was held on 
Thursday, May 5th. The 
ceremony was held in the 
Leslie S. Wright Concert 
Hall. The purpose of the 
occasion was to encourage 
goals in the quest of 
learning. This was the 
second Honors Day in this 
format to be observed by the 
University. It combined 
Scholarship Day, which was 
inaugurated by the faculty 
in 1936, with Awards Day, 
which recognized student 
acheivements in a wide 
range of campus activities. 

Jean Anderson, secretary 
to Provost William Hull, 
was responsible for 
planning this event which 
was designed to reward 
students who had obtained 
excellence through their 
academic standards. The 
convocation was attended 
by family members and 
others in the Samford 
community. The Honors 
Convocation speaker this 
year was history professor 
Dr. James Brown. He was 
chosen for this special 
responsibility by vote of the 
faculty as one who truly 
represented the best in 
scholarship and teaching. 

According to Jean 
Anderson, the awards given 

at Honors Day were 
university-wide awards. 
Students with Class Honors, 
High Class Honors, and 
Highest Class Honors were 
recognized and awarded 
with medals. Many service 
awards and scholarship 
awards were also presented 
during the convocation. 

Two of the most 
prestigious awards given by 
the University were 
presented at Honors day. 
The John R. Mott Award, 
given to the man in the 
senior class who was 
adjudged by the faculty to 
represent the highest type of 
character, scholarship, and 
student public service, was 
awarded to Stephen 

Davidson who had served as 
president of the SGA. The 
James M. Sizemore Award, 
which was presented 
annually to the person in 
the senior class who had 
best demonstrated 

character, personality, 
scholarship, and unselfish 
service to the University, 
was awarded to Hope 
Haslam who had served all 
over campus in positions 
such as Head Resident 
Assistant and President of 
Campus Ministries. 

Many service and 
community awards were 
presented on this special 
occasion. Recipients 
included James Harrison- 
Alpha Phi Omega Service

Though their numbers 
were small, the leaders of 
the Black Student Organ- 
ization said they did not 
intend to be simply a 
'minority group.' "We 
aim to focalize on black 
students' social activities 
and academic progress as 
we fellowship among 
ourselves and with others 
in a Christian atmos- 
phere," said BSO presi- 
dent, Jeff Jackson. 

The BSO was estab- 
lished on campus in 1972 
out of concern for the 
lack of social activities for 
minority students. Six- 
teen years later in 1988, 
the BSO was continuing 
to promote black aware- 
ness not only through the 
promotion of Black His- 
tory month in February 
but also by participating 
in other campus events 
such as Fall Carnival, 
Step Sing, and Vision '88. 

Stemming from the 
BSO was "Voices of Tri- 
umph," Samford's only 
all-black choir. It's pur- 
pose was to broaden the 
campus' cultural aware- 
ness by performing music 
that was associated with 
Afro-Americans. Their 
music included spirituals 
and old-fashioned and 
contemporary gospel. 

Jeff Jackson was also 
very busy informing the 
campus of the traditions 
and heritage of African- 
Americans. In February, 
for the second year, Jack- 
son published Black His- 
tory articles in the 
"Crimson" and wrote and 
announced Black History 
Facts during the month. 
This month known as 

Black History Month also 
brought a performance by 
the Voices of Triumph and 
the first annual Black Stu- 
dent Organization dinner 
sponsored by the SGA. In 
April, the group was 
honored when their presi- 
dent, Jeff Jackson, was ini- 
tiated into and unanimously 
elected the president of Pi 
Gamma Mu, the interna- 
tional fraternity for social 
sciences. This was the first 
time in SU history that the 

seat was held by an African- 

Officers of the BSO were:

After months of pro- 
longed agony, the Air 
Force ROTC detachment 
was informed that it 
would NOT be the sub- 
ject of military cuts. A 
program to educate and 
train young men to be of- 
ficers in the Air Force, 
the ROTC program for 
the Birmingham area was 
located on Samford's 
campus in the basement 
of Crawford-Johnson Dor- 
mitory. The detachment 
drew cadets from five 
Birmingham area col- 
leges: Samford, Birming- 
ham Southern, Monteval- 
lo, UAB and Jeff State. 
The Cadet Corps had 73 
members, approximately 
one-third of which were 
Samford students. The 
activities of the Air Force 
Detachment included 
their Spring and Fall pa- 
rades, Center of Influence 
parties which were used 
for recruitment purposes, 
and fundraisers. This 
year's Cadet Corp Com- 
mander was Ken Tatum, 
a senior from Samford 
majoring in physics who 
earned a pilot allocation 
in the Air Force.

Angel Flight was an Air 
Force ROTC support 
group that was nationally 
acclaimed. Not only die- 
Angel Flight draw its 
members from Samford's 
campus but also 
Montevallo, UAB and 
B'ham Southern. It was 
an honorary, profession- 
al, and educational ser- 
vice organization that 
worked in conjuction 
with the Arnold Air So- 
ciety, an elite group of 
AFROTC cadets, to ben- 
efit philanthropies, cam- 
puses, and community. 
The two organizations 
promoted POW/MIA 
awareness, helped under- 
priveleged children, and 
did maintenance for 
Camp ASCCA as well as 
ushering at sports events 
and participating in civic 
activities. Angel Flight 
required no military ob- 
ligation whatsoever but 
helped in the recruiting 
efforts of AFROTC. Mem-

The Samford Universi- 
ty A Cappella Choir was 
more than a singing or- 
ganization, it was a way 
of life. 

The experience of be- 
ing in the choir was dif- 
ficult to explain to some- 
one who was not a 
member. The choir could 
be described as a group of 
college students who, by 
the end of their time in 
the choir, had become a 
family and this experi- 
ence would unite them 
for the rest of their lives. 

The choir was actually 
molded each year at choir 
camp held at Shocco 
Springs Baptist Assembly. 
Camp was not only an in- 
tensive period of rehears- 
al, but also a spiritual re- 
treat. Attitudes which 
followed the group for the 
entire year were formed 

there. A service was held in 
which the members dedi- 
cated their lives to the ser- 
vice of God through singing 
in the group. 

Through the years, the 
choir acquired many tradi- 
tions which were practiced 
every year. The annual ser- 
enade and dedication ser- 
vice at camp, secret pals 
called A Cappella Angels 
and A Cappella Fellahs and 
special devotional times be- 
fore each concert were a few 
traditions that made the 
memories of the A Cappella 
Choir so strong in the hearts 
of its former members. 

The choir served many 
functions. Singing for on- 
campus convocations, spe- 
cial programs in the Ala- 
bama Baptist Convention 
and special appearances in 
local civic functions were 
just a few. This group was 

also a public relations facet 
of the university. 

However, the primary 
function of the choir was to 
share the gospel of Jesus 
Christ through concerts of 
sacred music representing 
the finest in choral litera- 

Each Spring Break the 
choir loaded up two busses 
and hit the road for a ten- 
day tour. This spring break 
they traveled throughout 
Alabama, northern Florida, 
Georgia, and South Carolina 
singing in churches and 
schools and staying in the 
homes of the church people. 

As soon as the semester 
was over, the choir headed 
for Germany. They sang in 
churches, cathedrals, 
schools, and civic auditori- 
ums. After a two week tour, 
approximately half of the 
choir returned while the 

other half remained anc 
were divided into twc 
groups to join with a group 
of German singers to do tenl 
missions in German towns 
for another week. 

This year, the choir ex 
perienced something specia- 
as they celebrated their 50tl\ 
anniversary. Founded in 
1939, the choir had had 
three conductors and had | 
become one of the premier^ 
college groups in the nation. 
It had reached its greatest 
standard in performance 
and reputation under theji 
present conductor, L. Gene. 
Black. Dr. Black celebrated 
his 25th anniversary as con 

Almost 200 choir alumni 

returned to Samford this 
year for the 50th Anniver- 
sary Homecoming Concert jjy 
and sang two songs with the » [ 
choir at the end of the con- B 'j 
cert, loma

The Samford Singers 
were a group of 10 stu- 
dents from all walks of 
student life, singing 
Christian contemporary 

Under the direction of 
Steven Roads, a Cumber- 
land Law senior, and the 
faculty sponsorship of Dr. 
L. Gene Black, the Singers 
represented many areas 
of the student body from 
music majors to Greeks to 
art majors. They also rep- 
resented a wide area of 
the United States coming 
from as far away as Flor- 
ida, Ohio and Colorado. 
Uniting these very differ- 
ent lifestyles was the stu- 
dents' love of music and 
their love for Jesus 


All members of the 
Samford A Cappella Choir, 
the Singers participated in a 
European tour in conjuction 
with the choir in the Spring 
of 1989. They also spent ex- 
tra time touring on their 
own, both abroad and here 
in the states. 

Partly due to the success 
of their 1988 recording,"We 
Live for the Lord," the Sing- 
ers sang quite frequently at 
area churches, as well as in 
churches across Alabama 
and in neighboring states.

In February of 1988. the 
Samford student body 
elected the officers for 
the 1988-89 school year. 
Stephen Davidson was 
elected in a run-off 
election to lead the SGA 
as president. Davidson 
said, "I would like to 
unify the student body by 
continuing the effective 
student activities but at 
the same time pushing 
toward positive policies 
and changes that students 
would like to see come 
about." Along with 
Davidson, Becky Brown 
was elected as Vice 
President for student 
activities, Mike Pugh as 
Vice President for the 
Senate, Suzy Herrington 
as Cheif Justice and 
Matthew Meadows as 

For the first year, 
Samford's Student 
Government Association 
sponsored leadership 
conferences for college 
and high school students 
during the Step Sing 
weekend in February. 
The Conference was held 
in two parts. 

Friday, the Alabama 
President's Council 
Leadership Conference 
included 40 SGA leaders 
from colleges and 
universities in the state. 
Key speakers included 
President Thomas Corts 
and Marlene Reed, 
associate professor in the 
School of Business. The 
conference concluded 
that night with the group 
attending Step Sing '89. 
On Saturday, 75 high 
school student 

government leaders from 
all over Alabama kicked 
off the 1st Annual 
Alabama High School 
SGA Leadership 


Conference. "We brought in 
the best leaders from high 
schools all over the state to 
let them see Samford in 
action," said SGA President 
Steve Davidson. 

Speakers included former 
SGA President Greg Powell, 
Provost William Hull, 
Superintendent of the 
Birmingham Board of 
Education Cleveland 
Hammond, Governor Albert 
Brewer, and Vice President 
and Dean of the School of 
Business Robert David. The 
high school government 
leaders also ended their 
conference at Step Sing '89. 

Steve Davidson said Step 
Sing weekend was a great 
time for prospective 
students to see Samford. 
"We wanted to show them 
the enthusiasm of the 
student body, which was at 

its peak during Step Sing," 
he said. 

The SGA president for the 
1989-90 school year, Mike 
Pugh, planned to carry on 
this important event. He 
remarked, "The conference 
is a great recruiting tool for 
high school students who 

are in leadership roles. It is a 
learning experience for all 
high school and college

University communications 


Under the advice and 
direction of the Journal- 
ism and Mass Communi- 
cations Department the 
Samford Crimson, the 
Entre Nous, and WVSU 
provided students with 
first-hand experience in 
the field of communica- 
tions. The Crimson was 
led by junior Tracey 
Shepard who was a JMC 
major from Nashville. 
Other members of the 
staff were Franchesca 
Merrell , Dianne 

Shoemake, and Bill 
Carothers as News edi- 
tors, Leah Williams as As- 
sociate News Editor, 
Mike Easterling as Sports 
Editor, Grant Guffin as 
Associate Sports Editor, 
Walter Hutchins as Opin- 
ions Editor, Sean Flynt as

tainment Editor, Tom Bris- 
coe as Cartoonist, Ann Ma- 
rie Harris and Dana 
McClendon as Photographic 
Editor, Sonya Gunn as Ad- 
vertising Manager, and Kim 
Bush as Editorial Assistant. 
For the second year, Jon 
Boone, a JMC major from 
Louisville, Kentucky served 
as manager for WVSU. 
Along with news director 
Mike Easterling, Boone con- 
tinued an outstanding news 
program which offered lo- 
cal, national and interna- 
tional news twice a day. The 
stories were primarily from 
the Associated Press wire 
service, the Birmingham 

Post-Herald, and the Bir- 
mingham News. Jerry 
Tracey, Channel 13 meteor- 
ologist called in daily 
weather reports, and the 
Robinson Humphrey invest- 
ment firm prepared stock 
reports which were read 
each afternoon. This provid- 
ed much practice and expe- 
rience for the members of 
the WVSU staff. 

After a semester-long 
search, LeAnne Green, a 
sophomore biology major 
from Marietta, Georgia, was 
chosen to lead the Entre 
Nous Yearbook as editor.

Facing A New Division With Guts

from Division HI to I-AA, the 
Bulldogs tackled even 
tougher territory in teams 
such as Nichols State, West 
Georgia, and Ceorgia South-

em. The division move also 
allowed the football pro- 
gram to offer 70 scholar- 
ships, 25 of which were giv- 
en out this year. The 
remaining 45 were distrib- 
uted over the next two 
years. With all the new tal- 
ent, the Bulldogs gave all 
that they had and ended the 
season with a 5-6 record. 
This record for the Bulldogs 
proved what hard work and 
tremendous athletic ability 
could do for a team who 

sought to succeed in a new 

The Bulldogs also had one 
player, who through much 
practice and gut determina-

Richardson, a senior from 
Tallahassee, Florida, and 
wide receiver for the Bull- 
dogs, set a career record in 
receiving with 965 yards 
and 44 receptions and in 
scoring with 10 touchdown 

Likewise, the offensive 

and defensive players 
showed miraculous athletic 
ability throughout the sea- 
son and their ability cou- 
pled with the determination 
to conquer new territory in

team a spirit of cohesiveness

son. The Bull- 
dogs' head coach 
Terry Bowden 
was the son of a 
former Samford 
coach and legend- 
ary Florida State 
coach Bobby Bowden. Terry 
Bowden, however, was busy 
making a name for himself 
in college football. 

When Bowden came to 
Samford in 1987, he took a 
team which had won just 
six games in the previous 
three years and finished his 
first season with a record of 
9-1. Bowden was named by 
Football News as the Na- 
tional Co-Coach of the Year. 
As his second season began, 
he faced a new division and 
a new challenge. 

At the beginning of the 
1988 season, Bowden said, 
"A lot of people said when I 
came here that we couldn't 
win at Samford. They were 
wrong. Now a lot of them 
are saying that we can't win 
at the I-AA level, but I am 
consumed by this program. 
I'm totally confident that we 
can win on this level." Win 
they did. Facing the tough- 
est schedule in Bulldog his- 
tory, the team emerged with 
an impressive 5-6 record. 

Bowden was determined 
to win. With his leadership 
and guidance, the team had 
come a long way and the 
future was promising.

Opening the season 
against Jacksonville State in 
Jacksonville. AL, the Bull- 
dogs suffered their first de- 
feat in a new division. The 
Bulldog offense scored only 
six points against the hard- 
nosed defense of Jax State 

who collected 34 points. 

The second game of the 
mighty Bulldogs took them 
to the battleground of Nich-

set the Bulldogs with a score 
of 43-17. This game seemed 
to spark a need for tougher 
competition in the Bulldogs 
and victory began to blos-

The Samford Bulldog's 
offensive line had some 
great players. One such 
remarkable and dedicat- 
ed player was #3, Robert 
"Shorty" Smith. Standing 
only 5-6, 195 pounds, and 
a senior from Sarasota, 
Florida, "Shorty" exem- 
plified outstanding talent. 
He dominated the field, 
broke numerous tackles, 
tore through the opposing 
defensive lines for major 
plays and yardage, and 
projected as a great team 

In the 1988 season, 
Shorty gained 860 yards 
rushing, 285 yards receiv- 
ing with 34 receptions, 
and returned eight kick- 
offs for 133 yards. Shorty 
carried in eight touch- 

downs ending with 48 to- 
tal points. In 1987, Shorty 
set Samford's rushing 
record with 889 yards, led 
team carries, had numer- 
ous 100-yard games, av- 
eraged 25 yards on 26 
kickoff returns, had a ma- 
jor kickoff return of 69 
yards, averaged 6.0 yards 
per carry, and finished 
the season with 56 points 

"Shorty" Smith was a 
marvel to watch and gave 
the Samford Bulldogs 100 
percent talent, dedica- 
tion, and performance. 
And as one player stated, 
"Shorty is a team player 
and friend who made the 
game exciting to play and 
be a part of."

hen, the Bulldogs 

traveled to Geor- 
gia Southern for 
the big match of 
strength. Our 
own Crimson and 
Blue played well, scoring 
the first seven points of the 
game. But Georgia Southern 
came back and defeated the 
Bulldogs 49-21. In this new 
division Sam ford performed 
very well against the strong 
defense of the Eagles. 

Ending the season against 
Miles College at Seibert Sta- 
dium, the Bulldogs were hit 
not only with strong tackles 
but hard rain and wind. Al- 
though the conditions were 
bad, Samford ran over the 
Golden Bears. "Shorty" 
Smith carried for long yard- 
age and, with the passing 
game working well, 
"Shorty" scored. Wide re- 
ceiver Tim Richardson 
made some very smooth 
moves and stretched the 
lead. The final score against 
Miles College was 34-6. 

Even with the win over 
Miles College, Samford 
ended the season with a los- 

ing record of 5-6. Not only 
did the divisional jump 
prove instrumental in giving 
the Bulldogs experience, 
but it gave the fans a chance 
to see skill and agility at its 
best. With the experience 
gained in the 1988 season in 
Division I-AA, Bowden and 
the Bulldogs looked forward 
to a better football season in

The Bulldog defense had 
grown into a powerful and 
unmoveable force that 
caused crushing tackles and 
plays to their opposing of- 
fensive players. A fixture to 
the Bulldog defense was Jon 
Brown, an outstanding line- 
backer standing 6-2, 205 
pounds, and a senior from 
Jacksonville, Florida. 

Brown was described as 
the number one outside 
linebacker coming from 
spring drills and proved to 
be an impact player on spe- 
cial teams. His 1987 season 
with the Bulldogs was ex- 
cellent. He started every 
game, led team tackles with 

a total of HH, had 51 solo 

stops, made three sacks and 
fumble recoveries, and 
broke up five passes along 
with three blocked punts. In 
1986, he led the team in 
tackles with 73, made 46 
solo stops, intercepted one 
pass and broke up tl, 

Jon Brown's brilliance as a 
player helped Samford's de- 
fense to become unstop- 
pable. Being a senior on the 
team, Brown proved valu- 
able to the defense as a lead- 
er as well as a remarkable 
player which fans adored.

And Hamilton did start off 
bright with a dual season 
high of 30 points against the 
Mount St. Mary Mountain- 
eers, while senior center, 
Richard Sutherland, led in 
rebounds with seven. 

But the light did not stay 
bright for long. During the 
rest of 1988, Samford weak- 
ened their record to 3-6, 
making resolutions of better 
games for the new year. 
Samford suffered losses to 
Oklahoma State, Coppin 
State, and Southwestern 
Louisiana, while defeating 
Liberty University 77-65 
and keeping a seven-point 
lead against Alabama A & M 
before a Samford crowd of 
1,400 plus. Scoring his sec- 
ond season high of 30 points, 
6'2" Hamilton also led with 
five rebounds in a losing

and to in-town rival Bir-

The ailing bulldogs looked 
for Christmas to bring sea- 
sonal joy on and off the 
court for 1989. 

But January wasn't any 
indication the Bulldogs 
were on the road to recov- 
ery. Their January 5 loss to 
Hardin-Simmons was the 
first of four close matches 
Samford would lose before 
the end of the 1989 season. 

The purple and gold Cow- 
boys defeated Samford 52- 
54. The Bulldogs were 
kicked again by another 
Texas team, the University 
of Texas-San Antonio. The 
Texas Roadrunners won 45- 
73 in Samford's fourth 
TAAC loss. The University 
of New Orleans was the 
next predator beating 
Samford 46-60. The Priva- 
teers won even against the 
effort of junior, Stanley 

Wormely. This 6'8" forward 
led the Bulldogs in scoring 
with 15 and in rebounds 
with 11.

of Arkansas-Little Rock 
came away with a narrow 
victory of 84-87. Samford 
was then victim to the Uni- 
versity of Missouri-Kansas

stomped the Dogs 51-77. 
Next was Mercer, who stole 
the victory 68-69 in the first

then suffered a 10-point loss

son was not as dismal as the 
record displayed; the Bull-

games, but two of those 
games were the closest and 
hardest fought all season. 
After being defeated by 
UALR 62-73, Samford lost a 
winning opportunity against 
Georgia State 66-68. Mem-

thers. Next, Samford lost 

their second game against

before a season-high crowd 
of over 1,500. McLean's

points. The Samford Bull- 
dogs lost their final game 65- 
70 to the Stetson Hatters to 
end a discouraging season of 
8 wins and 19 losses. Per- 
haps the brightest point of 
the season was the selection 

of Richard Sutherland to 
All-Conference for his lead 
ership in Bulldog field goals, 
his ranking among the top 
eight rebounders, and his 
place in the top 20 scorers in 
the TAAC. Sutherland, a six

was looking toward the fu- 
ture season. Hamilton said, 
"We had a lot of close op-

It's More Than Just The Obvious * 


ndless hours of 
practice through- 
out the year kept 
the Samford Bull- 
dog Varsity 
very busy. The 
hard work payed 
off as they led the student 
body in support and spirit of 
Bulldog football and basket- 
ball. However, practice and 
cheering were not the only 
activities in which the 

' Cheerleaders 

cheerleaders were involved. 
During the year, the Var- 
sity cheerleaders were busy 
representing Samford in 
many activities. During the 
summer, they held a Spirit 
Camp where they taught 
cheers, chants, stunts, and 
dance routines to squads 
from area high schools and 
junior high schools. Later 
during the football and bas- 
ketball seasons, they held a 
Cheerleader Day for area 

squads and gave the girls 
the chance to cheer with 
them during the game. The 
money they raised from the 
Spirit Camp was used to 
send the Samford squad to 
the Universal Cheerleaders 
Association Camp at Middle 
Tennessee State University 
in Murfreesboro where they 
came away with a trophy for

Striking Back With Winning Seasons

time of transition 
was a good way to 
describe this 
year's tennis sea- 
son. According to 
Coach Jim Moort- 
gat, both the 
men's and wom- 
en's team improved as the 
season progressed. 

"The women's team was 
very succesful, moving from 
seventh in the conference to 


fourth. The men's team was 
better than their record in- 
dicated. They just had some 
tough matches. These two 
teams are the best I've 
coached since I've been at 
Samford — personality and 
talent wise," Moortgat said. 
In the fall, Samford hosted 
a tournament that included 
players from several differ- 
ent colleges and a few local 
pros. The tennis team also 

hosted the second annual 
indoors doubles tournament 
in the fieldhouse. 

During Spring Break, the 
tennis teams toured Florida 
competing against four 
schools. Men's player, Dar- 
rell Smith, a junior graphics 
design major from Hunts- 
ville said, "We had a very 
successful trip winning all 
our matches, and we cele- 
brated by spending the day 

at SeaWorld!" 

Both teams worked ex 
tremely hard this past sea- 
son as it wasn't unusual to 
see the teams practice for 
four or five hours each af- 

Moortgat said recruiting 
was looking good for next 
year. He hoped to get three 
new players and foresaw a 
strong program in the fu- 
ture. Moortgat envisioned

The New Season Serves New Beginnings

he Samford Vol- 
leyball Team 
faced many 
changes this year, 
the biggest being 
a new coach. 
Coach Beth Dal- 
ton brought to 
Samford eight years of ex- 
perience and a new attitude 
of consistency and respect- 
ability. Trainer Sheri Locke 
said that "motivation and 


discipline" was what helped 
prepare the team to play and 
give it their all. 

The team consisted of 
twelve scholarship players 
and two walk-ons. Seniors 
Kim Duncan, Joette Keller, 
Samantha Huff, and fresh- 
man Kathy Knox, a 
Brentwood, Tennessee math 
major led the Lady Bulldogs 
in their effort to have a win- 
ning season. Joette Keller 

was honored as the team's 
MVP and 2nd team all con- 
ference. Several leaders 
"provided energy that excit- 
ed the rest of the team," said 
Coach Dalton. 

The team worked hard to 
overcome several bad sea- 
sons and improve their rep- 
utation on the court. They 
ended their season with 16 
wins and 26 losses. Ten of 
the losses were by just two 

points. Coach Dalton re- 
marked, "These close 
matches gave us motivation 
going into next season 
knowing how young our 
team was." The team placed \A 
2nd in the Northern divi- 
sion of the conference and 
6th in the New South Wom- 
en's Athletic Conference.

More Than Just A Pitching Game 

■■iffffitiiiar-r y i— —i

n its third season, 
Samford's softball 
team enthusiasti- 
cally prepared for 
a winning season. 
Under the guid- 
ance of the new 
head coach Rod 
Dalton, the team's schedule 
was increased to 40 games 
and new teams were added. 
According to Dalton, 
"There's a lot of excitement 


among the players. We're 
the only NCAA Division I 
fast pitch softball team in 
the state, and we have good 
Division I competition out- 
side of our region." Four 
northern Division I teams 
made swings through the 
South which gave Samford 
the opportunity to gain 
strength through diversity. 
The negative side of playing 
teams from the North was 

that it was difficult to know 
much about opponents. Dis- 
tance presented an obstacle 
in scouting reports, and the 
early stage of the season 
these game took place pre- 
vented experience from be- 
coming a factor. 

Pitching was a strong 
point for the team with two 
legitimate Division I pitch- 
ers. Another improvement 
in playing quality was ev- 

ident by changing the wom- 
en's positions around from 
those they traditionally had 
played. Outfielder Ginger 
Hall, a sophomore human 
relations major from Hix- 
son, Tennessee, echoed 
these sentiments, "The 
team this year had many tal- 
ented players. We were very 
excited about a new coach 
and a challenging season. 

Photographic Services 

"There have been a lot of 
good changes for the team. 
Our coach was much more 
disciplined and there was 
less room for relaxation 
which were good changes. 
This made us more motivat- 
ed and ready to play." 

With a lot of new, talented 
girls and a new coach, the 

excitement of starting over 
together was evident. It was 
a different team looking for 
a winning season. -Memiyn cook

he 1988-89 golf 
season went for 
both spring and 
fall with the Lady 
Bulldogs under 
the direction of 
Pam Kaufman 
and the men's 
team coached by Steve Al- 
good. The ladies hosted one 
meet in Daytona, Florida 
and participated in six oth- 
ers throughout the south- 
east in South Carolina, Ten- 

) Golf 

nessee, Alabama, and 
Florida. Karen Thomas, a 
freshman from Mobile, Al- 
abama, was one of the top 
golfers and won the Lady 
Governor Tournament at 
Austin Peay. Kristie Dick, a 
freshman from Tulsa, Okla- 
homa, had the second best 
average on the team. 

The men participated in 
eight tournaments, four in 
the fall and four in the 
spring. Coach Algood had 

the men practicing in the af- 
ternoons out on the golf 
course. Out of nine mem- 
bers on the team, Coach Al- 
good picked out Trip Te- 
aney, saying, "I appreciate 
more than anything Trip's 
positive attitude and dedi- 
cation in all that he under- 
takes. This is what has made 
him such a valuable mem- 
ber of the team." Trip was a 
junior from Winston Salem, 
NC and still had another 

year to be a valuable mem- 
ber of the team. Trip's av- 
erage score was 77.5, and his 
best round of the season was 
72. Other members of the 
men's team were Austin Al-

Bulldogs Take On Their Competition

he Samford base- 
ball team under 
their new head 
coach, Tommy 
Walker, became 
even more com- 
petitive this year, 
and with the re- 
cruiting of new players, the 
team was growing in talent. 
Three valuable players 
returned from last year's 
team including pitcher- 


outfielder Carl Tolbert and 
infielders Hootie Vaughn 
and Wade Lichliter. There 
were 10 junior college trans- 
fers playing for the program 
also. Walker felt that these 
experienced players would 
give Samford a "much bet- 
ter chance to surprise some 
people" as well as the op- 
portunity to "get competi- 
tive." Tim Hogan, a transfer 
from Pensacola Junior Col- 

lege, was the frontrunner 
for the catching position and 
the Bulldogs leading hitter, 
batting .500 with 17 hits in 
34 trips to the plate. First 
base was a toss up between 
returnee Daryl Green and 
walk-on Sean McManamon, 
who held the second leading 
batting average at .368. 
Jayce Allen, a junior trans- 
fer playing center field, was 
another talented addition to 

the ballteam. Newcomer, 
Steve Hunter, was a force to 
contend with at short stop. 
Other players included Rob- 
ert Alvarado, Marvin Julich, 
Kenny Barclay, John Mc- 
Cleney, Mike Kudd, Sam 
Hayes, Steve Levan, Joe 
Connick, Don'l Dease, Joe 
Savage, Phil Holmes, Carlj 
Tolbert, Darren Pool, Jim

nd Chuck Howard. 
The Bulldogs played sev- 
ral TAAC Eastern Division 
opponents as well as Divi- 
ion I powers including 
'lorida State, Auburn, and 
louth Alabama. This year's 
eason ended with a record 
if 17 wins, 30 losses and one 
ie. Although Samford's pro- 
;ram did not finish with a 
vinning record, a winning 
)rogram was emerging. 

Walker felt that the players 
made enormous progress. 
The Samford baseball team 
continued to practice hard 
and give 100% dedication. 
This new spark of hard 
work hopefully would bring 
a much better season in

throughout the 
challenging sea- 
son. The first of 
these, Wade Lich- 
liter from Vail, 
Colorado, started at third 
base and was one of only 
three returning regulars on 
the team. Wade transferred 
from Carl Sandburg Junior 
College after two years of 
play there. This Season, he 
batted .250 with 18 RBI in 
140 at bats, hit six doubles 
and one triple, and stole 10 
bases in 11 attempts. 

David "Hootie" Vaughn 
was another returning play- 
er from Midfield, Alabama 
and a three-year starter at 
second base. His batting av- 
erage was .261 with 18 RBI. 
He hit nine doubles and 
three triples. 

Carl Tolbert of Birming- 
ham was one of the top ath- 
letes on the team. Tolbert 

transferred from Gulf Coast 
Junior College after a suc- 
cessful sophomore year. 
This season, he pitched in 
the starting rotation and 
played everyday in the out- 
field. He batted .295 with 22 
RBI and led the team with 
49 hits for 166 at bats. He hit 
three home runs, two tri- 
ples, and 12 doubles and 
struck out 38. 

Kenny Barclay was anoth- 
er senior from Birmingham 
and one of the best fielders 
on the team. He stole seven 
bases out of eight attempts. 
At the plate, he averaged 
.212 with six RBI. 

Finally, Daryl Green of 
Midfield, Alabama averaged 
.213 with 13 RBI in 122 plate 
appearances and hit 6 dou- 
bles and played on both cor- 
ners of the infield as a first 
and third baseman. With the 
leadership of seniors all 
over the field, the SU base- 
ball team was prepared for a 
successful season.

For the second year in a row so- 
rority rush saw a record number of 
participants. With several changes, 
fall rush proved to be a success for 
the female greek system. 

Panhellenic President, Andi 
Campbell stated that the changes 
proved helpful to the system. Be- 
cause the sororities outgrew their 
chapter rooms, they were forced to 
relocate for the parties during rush 
week. The locations included LSW 
Concert Hall main lobby, LSW Mez- 
zanine, LSW room 311, LSW room 
101, and the Flag Colonnade room. 
Another of the changes included the 
addition of Rho Chis (Rush Coun- 
selors) who served to help rushees 
and establish friendships with the 
girls. Each sorority had two Rho Chi 
representatives on the Panhellenic 

Sorority rush was held on Sep- 

tember 5, 9, 10, and 11. Panhellenic 
Welcome and the rotational parties 
were held on September 5th. "By start- 
ing on Monday and skipping three 
days, it gave both the sororities and the 
rushees time to think about their de- 
cisions before beginning parties," 
Campbell said. This also proved to be 
academically beneficial to the stu- 
dents. "We were able to better con- 
centrate on classes during the week 
and then devote ourselves to rush on 
the weekend," said greek member 
Daphne Carr. 

The skit parties were held on Sep- 
tember 9th with the theme parties on 
the 10th. Rush ended on Sunday, Sep- 
tember 11th with Preferential and 
Squeal. Quota was set at 42 girls. Sev- 
eral of the sororities celebrated with 
Squeal Parties that night, while others 
waited until the following evening. 

Rush Chairman for Zeta Tau Alpha, 

Amy Lawrence, said, "It was a lot of 
work because there were so many 
changes and so many participants, 
but in the end the hard work paid 
off." Alpha Delta Pi Rush Chair- 
man, Ginger Hill, agreed saying, 
"Rush and Step Sing are two of the 
busiest times of the year, but the 
chapter grows much closer together 
as a group, and that makes every- 
thing worthwhile." Panhellenic 
member, Kristen Lucas said "being 
on Panhellenic was a great expe- 
rience, but squeal was a welcomed 

So the week that seemed to grow 
into an endless number of hours 
came to an end with many excited 
girls. Though it seemed to "be 
over", it had "only just begun."

He peered oul Ihe door like a 
scared rabbit coming out of his hole. 
With one hand holding his books to 
his side and the other grasping the 
coveted derby on his head, he 
dashed for safety as a herd of girls 
chased him like prey. 

Derby snatching was only one of 
the many fun events that look place 
the first week in October during 
Sigma Chi's Derby Days. Many oth- 
er events were featured as sororities 
competed to win the golden derby 
trophy and earn money for charity. 

All of the events took place in 
three: days. These included the ever 
popular derby snatch, car washes, 
dinner at Johnny Ray's, skit night 
and the derby bash, which featured 
a dance contest won by junior Al- 
pha Delta Pi, Karen Fairchild and 
Sigma Chi alum, Greg Long. 

Other events included the Mr. 
Legs contest won by sophomore Sig- 
ma Chi, Ralph Noble and the Derby 
Darling competition won by junior 

['hi Mu, Michelle Brown. These win- 
ners were determined by the amount 
of change collected in Ihe jars rep- 
resenting each sorority. 

For many of the Sigma Chi's, the 
most fun event was skit night. Sigma 
Chi Tom McDougal said, "It (the skits) 
gives us a chance to laugh at ourselves 
because the sororities rag on us. I like 
it especially because it's one of the few 
events which allows the sororities to 
be creative." Phi Mu's skit was the 
winner in this event. 

More important, however, than the 
competition and rivalry between the 
sororities was the money raised for 
charity. This year's competition 
brought in over $2,500 for the Cleo 
Wallace Center for Children, the Big 
Oak Boys' Ranch and the sororities' 

Derby Days Chairman Danny Ben- 
nett said, "It's not Sigma Chi that 
makes Derby Days, it's the sororities. 
We really appreciate the support of the 
sororities and their contributions. Sig- 

ma Chi doesn't get any of the mon- 
ey. It all goes to charity. Without the 
sororities, we couldn't do it. All of 
our thanks goes to them." 

The winner of this year's golden 
derby trophy was Zeta Tau Alpha 
with Phi Mu placing second and Chi 
Omega coming in third. Julie Grove, 
a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha said, "I 
was excited about raising so much 
money for Sigma Chi and for getting 
some of it to send to our own phi- 

In all, the week was deemed a 
success by those who participated. 
Senior Sigma Chi brother, Barry 
Mathis summed up the week's ac- 
tivites by saying, "While having a 
good time, Derby Days allows us to 
become more unified as a brother- 
hood and helps out our national 
charity. All of this comes together to 
make a week of good fun."

The 11 Greek social organizations 
came together to put aside their dif- 
ferences and competition in the an- 
nual rite of spring known as Greek 
Week. This week emphasized all 
areas of college life — athletics, ac- 
ademics, social, service, leadership 
and religion. For the first time, this 
year's week saw the inclusion of 
Alpha Kappa Alpha, the newest so- 
rority on campus. 

The week began with Jersey Day 
on Tuesday and the Greek Pageant 
which was held that night in the 
Wright Concert Hall. The winners 
of the pageant as Greek God and 
Goddess were Brad Williams, a 
brother of Sigma Chi sponsored by 
Zeta Tau Alpha, and Cindy Vines, a 
sister of Zeta Tau Alpha. Greek 
Goddess runner-ups were Jorja Hol- 
lowell, a sister of Alpha Delta Pi 
sponsored by Sigma Nu, and Ginger 
Hill, sponsored by Alpha Delta Pi. 
Greek God runner-ups were Andy 
White, a brother of Sigma Nu spon- 
sored by Alpha Delta Pi, and James 
Bodie, sponsored by Delta Zeta. 

Tim Hebson, IFC advisor, said the 
pageant was not a beauty or talent 
show, but a showcase of the stu- 
dents in the Greek system that were 
also campus leaders. 

Wednesday night was the time for 
the Greek convocation. Tom 
Caradine, a Samford graduate of 
1976 and a brother of Pi Kappa Al- 
pha, spoke at the chapel service. 
The Greek Week Dance was held 
the next night in the Bashinsky 

One of the features of the 
Samford Greek System was its over- 
all philanthropy, Hard Elementary 
School in Bessemer. As a part of 
Greek Week, the Greeks held a sock 
hop for the students at Hard. This 
was another part of the continuing 
relationship with Hard that the 
Greeks had during the year. At the 
end of the week, it was evident that 
the entire Greek system had come 
together and made a positive impact 
on the school and even the com- 
munity. -Bill Carothers

Omicron Mu Chapter of Alpha 
Kappa Alpha was chartered on 
May 14, 1988. The occassion was 
an historical event, as it repre- 
sented the first black, Greek- 
letter organization on campus. 
Twelve members were installed 
by the Regional Director of AKA, 
Nancy G. Sewell. AKA was 
founded by sixteen students at 
Howard University in 1908. As 
founders of AKA, the first black 
sorority, these women estab- 
lished a sisterhood which empha- 
sized the enhancement of Black 

AKA stressed the enjoyment of 
being a part of a service organ- 
ization not just a social organ- 
ization. Kim Bogan, AKA VP, said 
their main philanthropy was the 
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The 
group sponsored a SAVE-A-CAN 
campaign on campus to collect 
aluminum cans. The money 
earned was donated to the South- 
trust Bank's Stairclimb for Cystic 
Fibrosis. AKA sponsored a Hal- 
loween party for kids at Friend- 
ship Baptist Church with over 
120 children participating. As 
part of a national campaign to 
register a million voters, a reg- 
istration drive was held by AKA 
at Western Hills Mall. Along with 
communtiy activities, AKA par- 
ticipated in various campus 
events such as Vision '88, Fall 
Carnival and the Homecoming 
Spirit Contest. 

AKA's objectives included cul- 
tivating and encourganging high 
scholastic and ethical standards, 
promoting unity and friendship 
among college women, and ad- 
dressing the concerns of women. 
Omicron Mu acheived these 

Standards in 1988. -Tineka Bates

While most of Samford's stu- 
dents were soaking up the sun 
and getting some much needed 
rest, the Sisters of Phi Mu were 
working hard to plan their best 
year ever. 

Rush Workshop was held at the 
home of Tracy and Terri Tucker 
in Pell City in late July. This gave 
the girls the chance to catch up 
on everyone's summer and labor 
for the most important event of 
the year-RUSH. Techniques were 
polished as the sisters rehearsed 
their skits. Their T-Birds from 
"Grease" went from wimpy to 
macho while Sandy came from 
shy to shining. Dorothy from 
"The Wizard" found her way into 
everyone's heart as they cleaned 
up the Phi Mu Castle. 

Sister Cindy Pike from Lanett, 
Alabama explained, "After not 
seeing everyone for so long, Rush 
Workshop made me realize the 
strong bond of sisterhood we 
have and how it extends across 
the miles." 

Rush proved fruitful as Phi Mu 
chose 42 girls to join their sis- 

The sisters and pledges were 
involved in many campus activ- 
ites such as Campus Outreach, 
fraternity little sisters, SGA and 
SOLO. Suzy Herrington repre- 
sented Phi Mu in one of the most 
honored positions on campus in 
the office of Chief Justice. Jen- 
nifer Davis in reviewing Phi Mu's 
involvement on campus said." As 
a senior, I can look back on my 
years in college and see how Phi 
Mu made my experience a lot 
richer by encouraging me to ex- 
cel in every aspect of college 

life." -Whitney WhwUr 





The sisters of Delta Zeta strove 
for involvement not only within 
their sorority, but also campus 
wide. Throughout the University, 
one found DZs actively involved 
in many different campus organ- 
izations. As a sorority, Delta Zeta 
participated in Fall Carnival, 
Greek Week, Derby Days, and 
Step Sing. As a result of their 
hard work for Step Sing, Delta 
Zeta received third place in the 
women's division with their 
show, "Across America". 

The individual achievements 
of the sisters of Delta Zeta were 
numerous. Homecoming Queen 
and Senior, Hope Haslam added, 
"We pride ourselves on diversity 
bonded together by a sisterhood. 
We encourage members to be in- 
volved in every aspect of college 
life, not only in the sorority itself, 
but also campus wide." This in- 
volvement was achieved in many 
ways. Members of Delta Zeta 
held positions in various organ- 
izations such as junior varsity 
and varsity cheerleading, SGA 
senators, Baptist Student Union, 
Campus Ministries and SOLO. 
Senior Class President and mem- 
ber of DZ, Kristen Lucas said, 
"We are all individually different 
which enables us to participate in 
many activities. We like our 
members to be involved in every 
aspect of the school, individually 
representing Delta Zeta." Over 
the years, this diverse group, 
bonded together by sisterhood, 
was involved in many activities 
outside of their sorority, and it 
was a goal of the sisters to con- 
tinue this for years to come.

In the Orient, the Chinese cel- 
ebrated the Year of the Dragon, a 
time destined for prosperity and 
success. For the fourth consec- 
utive year, ADPi walked away 
with the Step Sing Sweepstakes 
Award. Tracey Kornegay, ADPi 
Step Sing Chairman said, "Our 
hearts were set on giving the 
show all we had, just the best . . . 
win or lose." This theme carried 
throughout the entire year, not 
only in Step Sing but in in- 
tramurals as well. ADPi per- 
formed competitively all year, 
and won softball for the third 
year in a row. 

Rush chairman, Ginger Hill, 
commented on how pleased the 
sisters were with Rush and their 
pledge class. Four of five frater- 
nities chose ADPis as their pledge 
class Sweethearts: Kelly New- 
some, Tara Pelz, Meredith Rob- 
ertson, and Jennifer Watts. Four 
fraternities chose ADPi Sweet- 
hearts for 89-90: Cassie Carlson, 
Karen Fairchild, Leith Thornton 
and Jorja Hollowell. Jorja and 
Ginger Hill finished as first and 
second runner-ups to the Greek 
Goddess. Other awards such as 
the Spirit of Entre Nous, Home- 
coming Spirit and Float Awards 
and Spring Fling Over-All Win- 
ner demonstrated the fine tradi- 
tion of ADPi. 

It was the "afterhour" scenes, 
however, that tied ADPi together 
as a sisterhood. Retreats, week- 
end rafting and road trips were a 
few of the things that set them 
apart and brought them together. 
These activities pushed them to- 
ward their common goal, to be 
"The First and the Finest."

Chi Omega 



Samford University's Zeta Zeta 
chapter of Chi Omega celebrated 
its 25th anniversary this year. 
The chapter was founded on the 
campus of Howard College on 
September 28, 1963. Celebrations 
for this silver-year event includ- 
ed a banquet held at The Club. 
Chi Omega's national vice- 
president, Jan Blackwell, attend- 
ed as a special guest and speaker. 

Chi Omega, however, was not 
all pomp and circumstance 
throughout the year. They found 
opportunity for fun as well. In 
November, they went on an ice 
skating excursion to share food, 
fun, and icy falls. On Squeal 
night, the cheers of Chi-0 were 
heard as 42 girls were welcomed 
into the sorority as new pledges. 
Another exciting addition to Chi- 
Omega was the 22 Chi-0 men. 
Specially recognized among them 
was Paul Storey, 1988-89 Owl 
Man, and Gentry Gonzalez, 1988- 
89 pledge class Sweetheart. 

Perhaps the most rewarding 
event for the sisters was their in- 
volvement with the King's 
Ranch. Many sisters volunteered 
to tutor some of the children of 
the Ranch. They hosted a Christ- 
mas party for the kids as a chap- 
ter-wide activity. Songs, games, 
and food were all a part of their 
Christmas spirit. Each sister 
brought a toy to share with the 
children, but, as Erin Weir said, 
"The most rewarding parts of the 
visit were the smiles that the kids 
shared with us." 

All in all, the sisters of Chi 
Omega enjoyed a great year of 
sharing with each other and the 
community. -Tir.Peii 



This year, the sisters of ZTA 
exemplified the purpose of their 
organization-"to intensify friend- 
ship, foster a spirit of love, create 
such sentiments, perform such 
deeds, and mold such opinions as 
will conduce to the building up of 
a purer and nobler womanhood 
in the world." Members of ZTA 
were leaders in virtually every 
part of SU. From Campus Min- 
istries to SGA, members and 
pledges took part. By encouraging 
its members to grow spiritually, 
academically, and socially, ZTA 
became one of the most success- 
ful organizations on campus. 

This year, the Delta Psi chapter 
received the Standards Award at 
the ZTA National Convention. 
The award was the highest award 
given to a ZTA chapter in rec- 
ognizing the high standards by 
which the chapter operated. 

Samford's ZTAs began the 
school year by pledging quota 
rush making the chapter total the 
highest on campus with 112 
members and pledges. The 
pledges soon learned that in- 
volvement in campus activites 
was part of being a ZTA. During 
Sigma Chi Derby Days, Zeta Tau 
Alpha placed first for the second 
year. Homecoming also proved to 
be a fun way for ZTA to support 
Samford. The organization placed 
second in the spirit competition 
while Amy Smothers and Amy 
Christmas represented their 
classes on the Homecoming 

In November, Zeta Tau Alpha 
was proud of members Julie 
Coons, Miss Entre Nous 1987, 
and Sonja Phillips, the new Miss 

Entre NOUS 1988. -Amy Lawrence

The brothers of Lambda Chi 
Alpha were proud to be involved 
in almost every organization on 
campus with brothers and asso- 
ciates participating in Varsity 
football, basketball, baseball, and 
golf, A Capella Choir, Air Force 
ROTC, Cheerleading, theatre, 
and discipleship to name a few. 
In the words of president Scott 
Myers, "Lambda Chi continues to 
be a measure of excellence, with 
members leading the way in vir- 
tually every aspect of college 

The fraternity participated in 
campus events such as Fall Car- 
nival, Greek Week, Homecoming, 
and Intramurals and placed sec- 
ond in the men's division of 
Spring Fling and in Step Sing 
with a wild and untamed show 
straight from THE JUNGLE. 
Lambda Chi Alpha also won 
awards from Samford's IFC. The 
fraternity won the IFC basketball 
tournament for the second year 
in a row and also placed first in 

Not only did the members of 
Lambda Chi share a brotherhood 
among themselves, but that 
brotherhood extended to young 
boys in Birmingham. Lambda Chi 
received a special award from its 
philanthropy, The United Way's 
Big Brothers of Greater Birming- 
ham. A plaque was awarded to 
the fraternity for outstanding in- 
volvement in the program. Ac- 
tivities with the boys included a 
trip to the Haunted House on Hal- 
loween night, Samford Bulldog 
football games, and a special 
Christmas party for the bo. 
the fraternity house. -c*&»ie c.ri«on 




"A house, a grip, a badge, a 
song, an emblem — these do not 
make a fraternity. It is the unseen 
things — friendship, brother- 
hood, character, honor, courage, 
and ideals — these make the fra- 
ternity and the man." This sen- 
timent was expressed by presi- 
dent Jeff Armstrong and the 
brothers of Pi Kappa Phi as they 
embarked on a new year. 

Throughout the school year, 
the brothers came together and 
were involved in many campus 
and community activities. As in- 
dividuals, the members were in- 
volved in activities such as Cam- 
pus Ministries, football, baseball, 
resident assistants, athletic train- 
ing, and A Cappella Choir. One 
brother, Pat Eddins, was honored 
to be chosen as Mr. Samford by 
the student body during Spring 
Fling. As a fraternity, the group 
participated in campus events 
such as Step Sing and Greek 
Week and was involved with the 
IFC/Panhellinic Adopt-a-School 
program and the University frat- 
row beautification project. They 
enjoyed many little brother/big 
brother games and activities and 
little sister football parties and 

One of the most rewarding ac- 
tivities of the year was the fra- 
ternity's interaction with its na- 
tional philanthropy, PUSH, Play 
Units for Severly Handicapped, 
which helped the handicapped 
adapt to the environment. Per- 
haps the involvement af the fra- 
ternity during the year could be 
summed up by Tim Lett, "When 
you are making a success of 
something, it's not work. It's a 

Way Of life." -LeAnne Green

The Brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha 
were proud with having the larg- 
est pledge class of 1988 totaling 
22. Pike President David Wil- 
liamson explained, "We have ex- 
perienced tremendous growth 
over the past few years, and I am 
confident that this trend will con- 

The word "brotherhood" en- 
compassed more than just a 
group of guys or casual 
aquaintances to the Pikes. 
Throughout the year they expe- 
rienced this meaningful bond of 
brotherhood. From road trips to 
the lake to cookouts at the house, 
House Party to remodeling their 
own fraternity house, pledges 
and brothers were brought closer 
together. Pike Brother, Colin 
Smith said, "Pi Kappa Alpha is not 
just a social club, it is a broth- 
erhood of men." 

The Pikes didn't just keep to 
themselves but were involved in 
various activites on campus. Ten- 
nis, track, SOLO, SGA and the 
Judiciary Court were just a few of 
their interests. Off campus, they 
participated in several communi- 
ty aids like the Lakeshore Drive 
Adopt-A-Mile program. Muscu- 
lar Distrophy, Pi Kappa Alpha's 
national philanthropy, also re- 
ceived the benefit of these young 
men's hard work. Raffle sales and 
early morning Krispy Kreme do- 
nut sales were just a few fund- 
raisers they sponsored to help the 
handicapped. The brothers of 
Pike continued to grow in mem- 
bership and campus leadership. 
As Treasurer, Marc Beaule 
said, "Pi Kappa Alpha is asserting 
itself as a leading fraternity on 
this campus."

GREEKS '89 ( 

On April 14, 1984, the Pi Chap- 
ter of Sigma Chi was founded, 
and in only five short years, the 
chapter's achievements and hon- 
ors established them as leaders in 
the IFC and on campus. Since 
their founding, they won the Le- 
gion of Honor Academic Award 
every year and was recognized by 
their national organization as one 
of the top chapters in the nation 
by winning the Peterson Award. 
The diversity within the chapter 
enabled them to spread them- 
selves across campus in many 
university events and activities. 
They took the position of SGA 
President for two years with Ste- 
phen Davidson and Mike Pugh, 
and Brad Williams served as IFC 
President for two years. 

One of their biggest honors 
came in winning the Best Fra- 
ternity on Campus award for the 
last two years. The brothers 
proved themselves outside of the 
classroom by winning the covet- 
ed All-Sports trophy. Sigma Chi 
was also involved in serving the 
community through Adopt-a- 
mile, Blood drives, Cystic Fibro- 
sis Stair Climb, IFC adopt-a- 
school program, and their philan- 
thropy, the George Wallace Vil- 
lage for Children. 

Keith Smith of Germantown, 
Tennessee, believed, "Sigma Chi 
brotherhood is an opportunity for 
me to grow in every aspect of life 
and a responsibility for all broth- 
ers to build better men." Sigma 
Chi believed in high standards 
and goals which was seen in the 
way the fraternity made a name 
for itself on campus.

The Iota Chapter of Sigma Nu 
was the oldest chapter on campus 
and proudly celebrated its 110th 
Anniversary in the spring. A 
Chapter built on history and tra- 
dition, these brothers took an ac- 
tive part in building the Samford 
Greek System. Throughout the 
year the fraternity was involved 
in activities that benefited the 
campus and community. They 
participated with Chi-0 in a Bal- 
loon Release in the fall and raised 
over $1000 for the American Can- 
cer Society. On campus, the 
chapter held several beneficial 
programs including a student ser- 
vice dinner for the administra- 
tion, the annual Alumni Brunch 
for Homecoming, and a risk re- 
duction seminar for all of the 
Greek organizations on campus. 

Brothers took part in many 
campus activities. Sam Fitch 
served as Secretary of the Junior 
class. Chris Webb and Seth Par- 
rish brought Samford state-wide 
recognition as members of the 
track team and Brian Jones was 
captain of the SU Tennis Team. 
Sigma Nu received the Sports- 
manship Award from IFC this 
year, and in the Greek God com- 
petition, Andy White received 
the scholarship award. 

From service projects to Flor- 
ida retreats, the unity that re- 
mained prominent in this chapter 
was always the main concern of 
the brothers. Commander Philip 
Hodges of Montgomery 
said, "Sigma Nu is the organiza- 
tion whose essence is in its tra- 
ditions that do no less than build 
character." jorja Hoiioweii

After all the busy planning and 
activity of sorority and fraternity 
rush, the work of the Panhellenic 
and Interfraternity Councils contin- 
ued. Plans soon began for partic- 
ipation in the Adopt-a-School pro- 
gram between Samford Greeks and 
the Bessemer City School System. 
This was a volunteer program de- 
signed to create a partnership be- 
tween adoptee and adopter. 

According to Tim Hebson, adviser 
to IFC, the school system was look- 
ing for role models which they 
found within Samford students. 

Each week, a different sorority 
and fraternity went to the school 
and participated and organized ac- 
tivities such as talent shows, career 
days, or tutoring programs. This was 
the first time a Greek group had 

supported this program. Participation 
began in the spring and Panhellenic 
and IFC organized the time volun- 
teered by the sororities and fraterni- 

Each group was also involved in 
their own projects during the year. Af- 
ter rush, Panhellenic members were 
busy putting together an all-sorority 
newsletter, The Greekvine, which was 
published for the first time before the 
Holidays. The newsletter contained 
news from each sorority such as white 
candles, weddings, special event win- 
nings and announcements of sorority 
and fraternity sweethearts. Zeta Tau 
Alpha President Edith Foster thought 
the newsletter was a great idea to let 
everyone know what was going on 
outside of their own sorority, and she 
believed "it will pull us all together." 

Tim Hebson and the IFC members 
were meanwhile working on ways 
to get more student support at 
Samford football and basketball 
games. They came up with some 
ideas such as presenting an award to 
the class or organization that 
showed the most support at a game 
as well as having a section set aside 
for each group to sit in at the home 
games. Overall, the Panhellenic and 
IFC councils were busy throughout 
the year not only working for the 
good of the Greek system, but work- 
ing for the good of the campus and 

the Community. -Melanie Pennington

The World 


In the Spring of '89. stu- 
dent protests rose in 
Tiananmen Square, Beijing. 
China, in response to the 
rampant corruption among 
high officials and the op- 
pression of the people. The 
students called for democ- 
racy and played carefully to 
the World's cameras to gain 
support from the Western 
world. The government, led 
by Deng Xiaoping, was di- 
vided between reformers 
and conservatives. On July 
4th, the protests were 
brought to a halt as the mil- 
itary massacred hundreds of 
citizens and began arresting 
thousands of protestors. 
President Bush was de- 
plored by the massacre. 


President Ronald Reagan 
and Soviet Leader Mikhail 
S. Gorbachev worked for 
several years to bring the 
two countries together. Af- 
ter a treaty was signed to 
eliminate certain nuclear 
weapons, 1988 was the year 
the efforts of these two lead- 
ers went into effect. The 
conferences on arms were 
also a chance for goodwill 
exchanges. The President 
made a special trip to the 
Soviet Union , and 
Gorbachev visited the Unit- 
ed States where he also met 
with President-elect Bush. 

The World 



Alt became an international 
effort of good will. Russian 
and American rescuers cut 
through the ice in Alaska to 
save two California gray 
whales. The whales were 
trapped in the ice for more 
than three weeks. News me- 
dia from around the world 
converged on the tiny vil- 
lage of Barrow, Alaska to 
cover the successful rescue. 

December brought ► 
tragedy to the Soviet repub- 
lic of Armenia. An earth- 
quake which measured at 
6.9 on the Richter scale 
transformed the bustling ci- 
ty of Leninakan into rubble. 
The death tole was placed at 
over 40,000, while 500,000 
were left homeless. Rescu- 
ers spent days digging 
among the rubble in search 
of survivors. 



The Year 

■^Hurricane Gilbert rose out 
of the Caribbean like a giant 
wind storm in late Septem- 
ber. By the time it lost its 
hurricane status over north- 
eastern Mexico, it had killed 
more than 300 people, left 
hundreds of thousands 
homeless, and caused bil- 
lions of dollars in damage to 
the Caribbean, Central 
America, Mexico, and the 
United States.

South, water bans were put 
into effect in many commu- 
nities. At the same time, for-

country, destroying million 
of acres of national park- 
land. The most heavily 
damaged was Yellowstone

may have been a

"When Bono came

The lead singer of 
the Grammy award- 
winning band ar- 
rived in Birmingham 
on Thursday, No- 
vember 17th along 

with the bass guitar- 
ist Adam Clayton. 

Bono told the As-

he and Clayton had 
decided to rent a 
jeep in Los Angeles 
and drive around 
the country to look 
for inspiration for 

Thursday night, 
Bono and Clayton 
showed up at South- 
side. Two students, 
Mindy Davis and 
Lea Alley, heard the 

two were in town. 
They had a hard 
time beleiving it but 
decided to check it 
out anyway. 

Davis and Alley 
finally found the two 
rockers after looking 
all over Five Points. 
Davis said Bono 
had attracted a size- 
able crowd down- 
town. She said she 
did not want to both- 
er him by going up 
and talking to him; 
she just wanted to 

see him. 

Mindy Davis and 
her friends left 
Southside about the 
same time Bono and 
Clayton did. After 
following the stars 
around, they were 
stopped at a traffic 
light when Bono 
suddenly jumped

no," Delaney said, 
"there is something 
about him that 
makes you feel re-

so real. He grabbed 
our hands and said,

having to use the 
wrong hand since 
he was carrying

who are just regular

enjoyed Birming-

Fun in the sun, 
playing fris- 
bee, body surf- 
ing, and getting a 
tan — this may have 
sounded like the 
perfect ingredients 
for a typical summer 
vacation. However, 
if you added intense 
personal and spirit- 
ual training, you 
changed a typical 
summer into Beach 

Beach Project was 
sponsored by Cam- 
pus Outreach in 
Panama City 

Beach, Florida. Mi- 
chael Brock, Beach 
Project student di- 
rector, said, "This 
year 50 students 
from Samford par- 
ticipated in Project 
along with students 
from the University 
of Alabama in Bir- 
mingham, Mon- 
tevallo, Birmingham 
Southern, the Uni- 
versity of North Al- 

abama, and Jack- 
sonville State." 

More than 120 stu- 
dents who lived and 
worked in the Pan- 
ama City area were 
given the opportuni- 
ty to strengthen their 
personal and spirit- 
ual lives, said Sonya 
McCrary, a team 

"It's a training ex- 
perience in which 
you learn how to 
have quiet times 
with God, sharpen 
evangelism skills, 
and teach others 
about the Word," 
Miss McCrary said. 

Each Saturday, 
the students from 
Beach Project gath- 
ered on the beach to 
play games and 
draw the attention 
of those who were 
vacationing. Their 
games included 
beach activities 
such as a tug-of-war 
game or a Mellow- 

Yellow chug. After 
attracting a crowd, 
they witnessed to 
the people "cold- 

Mike Brock said, 
"This summer mis- 
sions training not 
only strengthened 
your own walk with 
God, it also showed 
that you could wit- 
ness to people, like 
the ones on the 
beach, more effec- 
tively and produc- 
tively in the future." 

"The vision of the 
project was a life- 
time multiplying 
ministry built on a 

lifetime walk with 
Christ," said sopho- 
more Debbie Fryer. 
"Summer Beach Proj- 
ect was a great chal- 
lenge in learning how 
to deepen my walk 
with Christ while shar- 
ing with others how 
they could enter such a 
relationship. It was ex- 
citing and fun in that I 
lived with 120 other 
college students with 
the same purpose and 
spiritual goals. 

These students cer- 
tainly added a special 
ingredient to their typ- 
ical summer. □

Let's play a little 
game for a few 
minutes. If you 
will, think back to 
when you were 
around eleven 
years old. Remem- 
ber the dark blue 
Jordache jeans with 
the bright yellow 
stitching (usually ac- 
companied by 
bright new running 
shoes). Boy were 
you hot back thenl 

You wouldn't 
have been caught 
dead in faded jeans, 
especially if they 
were tornl The kids 
in homeroom would 
have thought you 
were dirt poor! 
Well, look how 

times changed. You 
no longer would 
have been caught 
dead in new jeans. 
Even new jeans had 
to look old. 

The trend to wear 
faded jeans began 
in New York City 
five years earlier. It 
soon made its way 
to our own campus. 
The faded-torn 
jeans trend spread 
like wildfire across 
campus, from C.J. to 
Beeson Woods. 

All you had to do 
to see the serious- 
ness of this trend 
was to go into a 
bathroom in Vail 
dorm. The smell of 
jeans soaking in

Clorox Bleach was 
enough to knock you 
out. The fine art of 
bleaching and rip- 
ping was passed 
from room to room, 
generation to gener- 

As the trend con- 
tinued, more holes 
and tears appeared 
in those old faded 
jeans. The more 
ripped they were, 
the more in fashion 
they were. Jorja Hol- 
lowell, a junior eng- 
lish major, said she 
loved wearing her 
jeans because "they 
have character." 
"They are my broth- 
er's and my dad's 
jeans. They are just 
so comfortable to 

wear to class or just 
to bum around in." 

During the winter 
months, our knees 
began to get cold, so 
we wore long un- 
derwear. When it 
was warm, we went 
without — our knees 
naked to the world. 

Most students cut 
up their own jeans 
with handy scissors. 
(Only 10% of ripped 
jeans happened 

The future of jeans 
. . . Well, that could 
only be predicted. 
Perhaps the faded- 
torn look would still 
be in, maybe with 
bell-bottoms. □

Throughout the 
country during 
the past five 
years, Video Cas- 
sette Recorders 
gained immense 
popularity. The ep- 
idemic did not fail to 
leave its mark on 
college life. Not only 
did every household 
have at least one re- 
corder, but many 
students began buy- 
ing VCR's for their 
dorm rooms. 

Taping soap oper- 
as, movies, and 
sitcoms was a major 
part of many stu- 

dents' lives, espe- 
cially if their class 
schedule interfered 
with their favorite 
shows. It was also 
not unusual for stu- 
dents to run to the 
many video rental 
stores in the area, 
rent a few movies, 
and have a little get 
together in their 
dorm room. It was 
easy to see why 
VCR's were so pop- 
ular. They allowed 
you to watch what 
you wanted when 
you wanted and 
provided a way to 
have a quick and 
easy party. 

Students' VCR's 
were great for fel- 
lowship with other 
students and defi- 
nitely for the busi- 
ness of local video 

Popular movie 
videos included 
Fletch, Jagged 
Edge, Broadcast 

News and St. Elmo's 
Fire . Also very pop- 
ular among ladies 
who wanted to keep 
in shape were Jane 
Fonda's aerobic 
workout tapes. 

"My VCR is very 
well used by ever- 
one but me. All the 
girls on my hall in 
Vail love to watch 
my movies. Their fa- 
vorite movie is 
Grease . Sometimes 
I wish I had some 
privacy," said Lida 
Hoskins, a sopho- 
more from Brent- 
wood, Tennessee. 

As the price of 
movie-going in- 
creased, renting 
videos became 
even more popular. 
At any time, and at 
a fairly cheap price, 
you could push in a 
movie, grab a Coke, 
and pop a bag of 
popcorn in the mi- 
crowave, another 
necessary appli- 
ance for any dorm-

the March 
on Wash- 
ington, Peace, Volk- 
swagon mini-buses, 
Free Love, and The 
Who: all these 
things equal only 
one thing . . . the 
decade of rebellion 
and social change, 
the 60's. 

While our genera- 
tion was in diapers, 
America was expe- 
riencing political un- 
rest and social cha- 
os. The "conflict in 
Vietnam" was 
played out every 
night on the evening 
news, while we 
watched the Electric 
Company . 

Now, twenty 
years later, America 
is suddenly facinat- 
ed by the 1960's 
once more. Old mu- 
sic is cool and 
bandanas are hip. 
And Samford stu- 
dents (always 
trendy) followed suit 
wearing tie-dye t- 

Tie-Dye t-shirts 

had to be hand 
made! To buy one 
(like in Panama Ci- 
ty) was "uncool". 

Several business- 
minded students be- 
gan producing tie- 
dye shirts and sell- 
ing them to students 
trying to relive their 
days in the 1960's. 

But what was so 
funny was that most 
people who actually 
lived in the 1960's 
didn't want to relive 
(or even think) about 
it. Most people were 
not hippies, they 
were hard-working 
people in dark blue 
suits with skinny ties 
and funny glasses. 

Oh well, maybe 
we were trying to re- 
live the 1960's when 
we wore our tie-dye 
shirts because, after 
all, they didn't make 
tie-dye diapers back 
then. □

Students' endless 
requests for tele- 
phone numbers con- 
tinued all the way 
until the end of Fall 
semester. What ever 
happened to those 
coveted phone 
books? Did they just 
vanish off the face of 
the campus, never 
to return? 

Glenn Schneider 
of Computer Serv- 
ices said a change 
in the computer sys- 
tem's mainframe 
caused the delay in 
retreiving the infor- 
mation for the direc- 
tory which other- 
wise would have 

been published ear 
ly in the semester. 
The students had 
been promised a 
book by the middle 
of November, bul 
because of nuraer 
ous delays, the 
books never ap 

Lack of a directo- 
ry caused frustra 
tion for some stu 
dents, particularly 
resident directors 
and assistants whc 
fielded dozens of re- 
quests for phone 
numbers every day. 

Paul Kendrick, o 
senior resident di- 
rector for Crawforc 
Johnson Hall, said 
that he received

students wanting 
numbers. "Iknow 
that it's something 
that goes along with 
the job, but not in 
this quantity." Ken- 
drick said it was not 
unusual to get 15 to 
20 calls in a four 
hour shift. 

Other students 
had problems from 
not having directo- 
ries. Cheryl Bryson, 
a sophomore public- 
administration ma- 
jor from Cleveland, 
Tennessee, said that 
she was "disgusted" 
over the delay. She, 
as did many other 
students, compen- 
sated for the lack of 
a phone book by 
making her own di- 

rectory. "1 sort of ac- 
cumulated some 
numbers." Not only 
did the lack of 
phone books cause 
problems for stu- 
dents and resident 
assistants, but the 
information office 
got numerous phone 
calls daily. Luckily 
the shortage only 
lasted for one se- 
mester, and books 
were received, al- 
though delayed, for 
spring semester.

Did you ever no- 
tice how empty 
the parking lots 
got on the week- 
ends. It was even 
easy to get those fa- 
mous miracle park- 
ing spots. Why was 
this? Well, students, 
like bats out of a 
cave, would flee the 
campus early Fri- 
day afternoon as 
soon as their classes 
were through for the 

What was so 
great about home? 
Was it the home- 
cooked meals, the 
loving family, or the 
no-charge laundry 

This epidimic, 
known as the suit- 
case-college syn- 

drome, was unfortu- 
nate for those 
students who didn't 
have a car or lived 
too far away to 
drive home every 
weekend. All five 
students left here for 
the exciting week- 
end could get to- 
gether, perhaps, 
and hang out in the 
post office or near 
the pool tables in the 
student center. 

The cafe was des- 
olate (kind of like a 
desert). The pushing 
crowds were gone. 
There was no fight- 
ing for a seat at that 
certain table. The 
cafe workers even 
got to know the 
weekend regulars. 

Occasionally, the 
SGA sponsored a 
campus movie or 
other activity to help 
ease the pain and 
make the weekend 
a little more tolera- 
ble. There was, 
however, a certain 
peace about being 
on an empty cam- 
pus for two days. It 

was a great time to 
catch up on home- 

All was not bad if 
you were left here 
on campus or if you 
chose to bear it out 
with the few and 
proud. For one 
thing, you could al- 
ways find a parking 
space. It was also a 
great time to catch 
up on a few missed 
hours of sleep from 
the week before, if 
you wanted to ven- 
ture out on the social 
scene, there were 
always many popu- 
lar activities on the 
weekend including 
going shopping, go- 
ing to the movies, 
going out to dinner, 
or going down to 

But, you never 
had to worry be- 
cause soon Sunday 
afternoon would roll 
around and the flock 
would come hauling 
back for another 
week of classes. □

anging out, 
flirting, resting 
between classes, 
skipping classes: 
Students love to be 
social. If you ever 
tried to weed 
through the post of- 
fice during convo, 
then you got the pic- 

The post office, 
wasn't that an un- 
usual place for peo- 
ple to congregate? 
Maybe it was be- 
cause the co-op and 
the student lounge 
were usually crowd- 
ed beyond belief 
and overflowing. 

The cafe also 
served as one of the 
most social places 
on campus. First of 

all, there were peo- 
ple who came to the 
cafe as soon as it 
opened and sat until 
long after it closed. 
These people simply 
watched other peo- 
ple, and usually 
didn't eat very 
much. Then, there 
were the table- 
jumpers. These peo- 
ple jumped from ta- 
ble to table making 
contacts and getting 

Next, we could 
move to Davis Li- 
brary. You would 
never try going 
there to study. It was 
only for when you 
wanted to socialize. 
Did you ever notice 
that everyone who 

attempted to study 
there had bad 
grades? The smart 
people were smart 
enough to go some- 
where else 

Last, but certainly 
not least, Vail lobby 
was always hop- 
ping. Students loved 
to watch t.v., play 
games, and watch 
each other leave on 

The social places 
on campus were 
numbered and var- 
ious, but they all 
served the same 
purpose — we got to 
know fellow college 
students better. D

'/ITIhere's no 

J. place like 
home. There's no 
place like home." 

Flocks of students 
and their parents 
arrived in droves to 
unload hundreds of 
boxes, crates, and 
suitcases to make 
their new dorm 
rooms look like 

However, as in 
past years, some 
students were call- 
ing the EconoLodge 
home. Even after the 

addition of three 
new Beeson Woods, 
Ethyl and Marvin 
Halls which housed 
41 students each 
and Rosa Hall 
which housed 49, 
the housing facilities 
were once again 
unable to accomo- 
date the overflow of 
students who 

wished to live on 

Dean Cox said, "I 
doubt that we can 
build a dorm before 
next fall. If retention 

is up and the appli- 
cations are there, 
using EconoLodge is 
an option again for 
next year." 

At the beginning 
of the year, there 
were 1,707 students 
receiving some sort 
of housing from 
Samford, 691 of 
these were men and 
1,010 were women. 
Therefore, over 100 
students were 
housed in tempo- 
rary places. 

In an effort to 
house all the women 
that applied, A, B, 
and C were made 
womens' dorms and 
eight of the twelve 
Beeson Woods now 
housed women. 

Vice President of 
Student Affairs Mar- 
tha Cox reported 
that 30 rooms were 
reserved at the 
EconoLodge for 
male students. This 
was the third year in 
a row that students 
had been housed 
the motel which was^ 
located on Green 
springs Highway. A 
shuttle was provid 
ed to and from ca: 
pus for the resident 
and a security offi 
cer was stationed <t 
the motel. 

Besides all the in 
convenience of liv- 
ing off campus, liv- 
ing in a motel coi 
not have been al 
that bad! After all

What game 
consisted of a 
pencil, paper, and a 
group of screaming 
players? The an- 
swer was Pictionary 
(charades on pa- 

This year, stu- 
dents caught the 
Pictionary fever like 
never before. On 
weekends, Vail lob- 
by and other gath- 
ering places on 
campus were fiiled 
with anxious play- 
ers vying for the big 

We watched on 
t.v. twice daily (T.V. 
Pictionary — Win, 
Lose, or Draw ) and 
loved to play it our- 

Part of the strate- 
gy of Pictionary was 
picking the most ar- 
tistic teammate. 

Even then, the hard 
part was to commu- 
nicate with the pic- 
tures. The game 
was fairly easy to 
play because there 
were few rules. A 
word was chosen 
and the player had 
one minute to con- 
vey the word on pa- 
per to his team- 
mates. Each person 
or group seemed to 
have their own spe- 
cial way or body 
language to commu- 
nicate using the pic- 

No symbols, num- 
bers, or letters could 
be used. Sounded 
easy? Sometimes it 
was, but some 
words would have 
left even Leonardo 
da Vinci stumped. 

So, what did all 
these competitive 

people draw? There 
were many catego- 
ries that the players 
could chose from 
such as people, 
places, action 
words, and difficult 
words. The dreaded 
"all-play" was espe- 
cially exciting be- 
cause it gave the 
teams a chance to 

compete directly 
against each other 
and the clock. 

Pictionary offered 
students the oppor- 
tunity to participate 
in fellowship while 
having a good time 
displaying their ar- 
tistic abilities in in- 
tense competition. □

ABORTION — The abortion is- 
sue was put back into tbe 
bands of tbe Supreme Court. 
The court agreed to hear an 
appeal to the Missouri law 
case of 1983. The attack on the 
1973 Roe vs. Wade case 
brought an onslaught of dem- 
onstrators for and against it. 
With an increasingly conser- 
vative Supreme Court, there 
was much speculation as to 
what would be decided.

couple with three kids on 
ABC's hit sitcom, "Roseanne",

The hilarious and sarcastic 
character of Roseanne showed 
a realistic mom managing cri-

call herself a "domestic god-

TYSON & GIVENS — It was 
one of the big marriages of 
this year. Heavyweight boxer 
Mike Tyson married actress 
Robin Givens. The stormy 
marriage of the 22 year-old 
rich boxer and the 23 year-old 
beautiful actress lasted less 
than a year. She filed for di- 
vorce, but after being accused 
of marrying "Iron Mike" for 
his money, Ms. Givens said 
she wouldn't take a dime.

A new idea 

based on a new idea 

A few years ago, we had a simple idea. 
Give staffs a better way to produce their 
yearbook copy. 

We introduced TypeVision software. 
We weren't really sure where it would 
lead but we had a hunch it would be big. 
Today, nearly 2,000 staffs send us their 
school year on disk. And they're having 
fun in the process. 

We thought about other possibilities. 
Finance. Indexing. Page design. And you 
know, the results surprised even as. Our 
Vision Series programs are unique. Thev 
serve as a standard for what yearbook 
software can, and should be. 

Now, we have another idea. It's as 
simple as the first but offers even more 

What if you could do it all on the 
computer' Have total control and access 
to everything in your vcarb<x>k? What 
if you could see your layouts, tvpe, 

lines, and , ^^^^^^^^^^""* 

other graphics 
combined and in place 
on the screen? 

What if you could make changes 
quickly and at will? Or move items 
around in creative play? And what if you 
could see complete pages, exactly as they'll 

be printed, within a short time after 
sending them in? 

The possibilities are endless. Taylor's 
Vision Electronic Publishing System is 
about to revolutionize the way vearrxx)ks 
are made. 

Make no mistake this is not desktop 
publishing LaSCT printers and desktop 
software don't begin to match the 
capability and creative control inherent 
with this system. 

Taylor Publishing Company is 
proud to be the publisher of 
the 1989 Entre Nous. 

Your personal computer actually 
becomes an extension of a complex 
mainframe computer network. Only 
we keep the complexity to 
ourselves, and give you the 

Eventhing you send us will be 
managed electronically. Even your 
pictures and artwork will be 
transformed into computer data No 
cameras are involved, no manual work 
and most importantly no interpretation. 
The result? No surprises Your pages 
look the way you pictured them Proofs 
come back quicker and all corrections arc-

Dominating the view of 
the campus was beautiful 
Georgian Colonial architec- 
ture that reminded every 
student, faculty member, 
administrator, and visitor of 
the strong traditions of the 
University. Although the 
school was founded as 
Howard College over one 
hundred years ago, the 
same Christian commit- 
ment combined with a 
strong liberal arts education 
had linked the past with the 

Inside these hallowed 
halls, however, the latest 
progressive teaching aids of 
computers, video, science 
labs, and facilities led to the 

This is what made 
Samford so unique and that 
is why she would be re- 
membered so fondly by all 
who came in contact with 
her. The faculty and leaders 
of the university were 
"equally serious about open 
minds and growing hearts." 
With high standards, SU 
prepared students for citi- 
zenship in a changing 
world, a world that they 
could make better as they 
entered it. Each student 
was provided with the op- 
portunity to prepare for the 
future and make friends for 
a lifetime.

Another year was over as 
students began leaving and 
dorms were locked up for 
the summer. After they left, 
they returned to their 
homes in many different 
states and countries. Some 
went to work and others 
went on various mission 
projects. All, however, took 
a piece of the University 
with them in their memo- 

Whether they were re- 
turning in the fall or were 
graduating, students were a 
part of the traditions and 
history of the school. 
Through each campus ac- 
tivity, group, class, fraterni- 
ty, and sorority in which 
they were involved, they 
contributed to the univer- 

Reminiscing on the col- 
lege years, some memories 
would be good and some 
would be bad. The future 
would be approached with 
excitement, fear, and sen- 
timentality. New lives 
would begin away from the 
school that had been so in- 
fluenced and strenthened 
by it. Character had been 
strengthened, horizons had 
been broadened, and minds 
had been expanded. With 
the year behind them and 
memories fresh in their 
minds, students confronted 
their futures. 





Friends and memories- 
two things that made the 
college experience what it 
was. As the year came to a 
close, it was time to say 
goodbye, atleast for the 
summer, to friends, room- 
mates, professors, books, 
rooms, cafe food, and color- 
coded parking lots. For over 
600 hundred students, this 
goodbye was a final fare- 
well. Although they would 
leave with innumerable ex- 
periences and memories, 
they would never return to 
what they would call the 
"college days". However, 
these graduates were enter- 
ing an exciting and chal- 
lenging world for which 
they had prepared for many 
years. They began their 
new lives with bits of ex- 
perience and were backed 
by a university with a cen- 
tury of tradition. They had 
grown as students, and now 
they were looking to an ex- 
panding future. Although 
the time was sad, it was also 
very exciting. 

A yearbook was to hold 
these memories which 
were to be held dear to all 
who came in contact with 
the University throughout 
the year. It was a reminder 
of the past and a glance at 
the promise of the future.

In the 1989 edition of the 
Entre Nous, we have at- 
tempted to capture the 
events that will remain 
among your memories for- 
ever. For years to come, I 
hope you look back, re- 
member, and enjoy as you 
move on to pursue goals 
and dreams. In this book, I 
strove to preserve the tra- 
ditions and events of the 
University as we confront 
our futures. 

I would like to express 
my deepest appreciation to 
the members of the staff: 
Doug Helms, Traci Odum 
(assistant editor), Whitney 
Wheeler, Carin Richardson, 
and Carolyn Johnson, as 
well as the many writers 
who contributed. At the 
same time I would like to 
wish the best to the future 
staff and editors. I extend a 
very special word of appre- 
ciation to Dean Martha Ann 
Cox and the Communica- 
tions Committee for all 
their support and under- 
standing. I greatly appreci- 
ate my Alpha Delta Pi sis-

ters who were always so 
willing to help and encour- 
age. I would like to thank 
my parents Rev. and Mrs. 
Billy Jack Green and my sis- 
ter Angie for all their help 
and love as I tackled this 
job. Finally, I wish to ex- 
press my most sincere grat- 
itude to Merrilyn Cook, our 
Taylor representative, for 
her friendship, support, de- 
votion, and time far beyond 
the call of duty. 

In conclusion, I thank all 
who are a part of Samford 
University who wish to 
continue the tradition of 
the Entre Nous and keep 
the memories alive. 

The 1989 edition of the 
Entre Nous was produced 
by the yearbook division of 
Taylor Publishing Compa- 
ny of Dallas, Texas. Mer- 
rilyn Cook served as tech- 
nical advisor, and Dr. Jon 
Clemmenson served as the 
University advisor. The 
cover photograph was pro-
